FCFC has two phenol/acetone lines, each with a capacity of 200,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 123,000 tonnes/year of acetone, the source said.

The producer was also scheduled to shut one of its downstream BPA lines, with a capacity of 130,000 tonnes/year, for maintenance at the same time, the source said.
The producer has four BPA lines with a total capacity of 420,000 tonnes/year.
All the plants are located in Mailiao, Taiwan.
