SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Taiwanese bisphenol-A (BPA) producer, Nan Ya Plastics, will reconsider the scheduled shutdown of its 100,000 tonne/year No 2 BPA line in September, a company official said on Friday.
“We confirmed the shutdown earlier, but now, we managed to procure some spot (feedstock) phenol and acetone, we might not need to shut our plant,” the source said in Mandarin, adding that further confirmation would be available next week.
The company had earlier planned the shutdown in tandem with the turnaround of Formosa Chemicals & Fibres Corp’s (FCFC) upstream phenol and acetone plant next week.
Nan Ya Plastics has a total of four BPA production lines, with a combined nameplate capacity of 420,000 tonnes/year.
