SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Japan's Mitsui Chemicals Polyurethanes has pushed back a month-long maintenance shutdown at its toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) plant in Ohmuta, Fukuoka prefecture, to mid-March from early March, a company source said on Wednesday.
The source did not say why the shutdown at the 120,000 tonne/year line had been postponed. The unit is currently running at 50% capacity, he said.
Its TDI line at Kashima, with the same capacity, is running at 45% capacity and will be shut in early April for a month-long turnaround as planned, he said.
