SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--India's Reliance Industries expects to start up a refurbished high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Gandhar, in Gujarat state, in the next two to three days, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
“The plant is now going through the stabilisation stage and should achieve commercial output once it is fully stabilised,” the source said.
Reliance officials were not available for comment.
The 60,000 tonne/year plant, which was acquired from the now-defunct National Organic Chemicals Industries Ltd (NOCIL) in 2005, was later moved to Gandhar from Thane, in ?xml:namespace>
Ethylene feedstock for the HDPE plant would be sourced from Reliance’s 430,000 tonne/year cracker at Gandhar, the source said.
