SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Reliance Industries expects to achieve full production at its 325,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant at Hazira in Gujarat by Wednesday, after a delayed restart on Sunday, a source close to the company said.
The VCM plant had been running at 50% for a week, after being restarted on 9 December, following a week-long outage.
“Around 18,000-20,000 tonnes of PVC is estimated to have been lost due to the two shutdowns,” the source said.
The two shutdowns have tightened availability of PVC in the country, boosting local PVC prices.
