SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Polymirae plans to restart its two polypropylene (PP) lines in Yeosu within the day after they were shut down on Sunday due to propylene feedstock issues, a company source said on Monday.
The lines have a combined capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year.
YNCC shut its 400,000 tonne/year No 3 cracker late on 21 August due to problems at its cooling system. The cracker was restarted the following day.
No maintenance shutdown has been scheduled for Polymirae’s two other PP units in Yeosu at this time, he said. These two facilities also have a combined PP capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year.
ICIS has launched weekly pricing reports in ?xml:namespace>
