SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Taiwan-based Chimei-Asahi has delayed the restart of its 65,000 tonne/year No 1 polycarbonate (PC) unit at Jen Te, Tainan county, to next week, a company source said on Wednesday.
The unit had been taken off line in early July to enhance the flexibility of the production line and was scheduled to restart in early September.
"We plan to restart the unit next week," the source said, adding that the delay was partly due to unspecified mechanical issues.
The company also operates a 75,000 tonne/year No 2 unit at the same site, which was running at full rates, the source said.
