HOUSTON (ICIS)--Honeywell’s caprolactam plant in Hopewell, Virginia, could restart as soon as 22 December, buyers said on Monday.
Honeywell said it would not comment on a possible restart date for competitive reasons, but did confirm on Monday that the plant was still down.
Honeywell supplies caprolactam, the main feedstock for nylon 6, to customers in the US and other markets, including Asia.
Caprolactam has been tight and price-pressured for several months amid strong export demand.
($1 = €0.76)
