LONDON (ICIS)--BorsodChem’s toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) facility in Hungary remained off line for longer than expected as technical problems had hindered the restart process after maintenance work, a company source said on Tuesday.
The source said BorsodChem had practically no stocks and added that TDI production at the site in Kazincbarcika, Hungary, was not expected to resume until at least the end of this week.
The 90,000 tonne/year TDI facility went off line in the second half of February for planned maintenance that was expected to last for approximately one week.
However, the first attempt to restart the unit failed over the weekend of 26-27 February due to technical problems. The TDI unit temporarily resumed output on Monday 28 February, but then went down again due to continuing technical issues.
