SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Taiwan’s Ming Dih Group restarted its 30,000 tonne/year expandable polystyrene (EPS) unit in Bangkok, Thailand, this week, following the end of the anti-government demonstration in the capital, a company source said on Thursday.
The unit was shut in late-November amid escalating violence following the seizure of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport by protestors.
The unit is currently operating at around 60% capacity, the source said.
Ming Dih also operates a 166,000 tonne/year plant in Taiwan and a 100,000 tonne/year unit in Zhongshan, southern China.
