SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Mitsui Chemicals Polyurethanes plans to restart its 120,000 tonne/year toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) plant in Kashima after it was forced to take the unit offline at the end of September due to incinerator problems, a company source said on Tuesday.
“We are currently repairing the incinerator and we are targeting for a restart on 14 October,” he said, adding that exports would be reduced by 4,000-5,000 tonnes in October-November although he declined to reveal exact figures.
Mitsui also operates another 120,000 tonne/year TDI plant in Ohmuta, which is running smoothly, he added.
