SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Thailand’s PTT Chemical plans to restart its 250,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Mab Ta Phut next week, after a month-long shutdown, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plant had been taken off line since early June for a maintenance turnaround, added the source.
Meanwhile, PTT Chemical’s new 300,000 tonne/year HDPE plant at the same site was still idle due to an on-site shortage of ethylene feedstock, he said.
The new plant was originally scheduled to start up in the first quarter of this year.
