LONDON (ICIS)--Zachem has shut down its toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) facility at Bydgoszcz, Poland, because of technical problems, a company source said on Wednesday.
The 75,000 tonne/year plant was taken off line on 18 March, the source said. The unit would likely resume operations this week, the source added.
Zachem is subsidiary of Ciech, Poland’s largest chemical group.
In Hungary, BorsodChem recently experienced a combination of technical problems and planned maintenance at its 90,000 tonne/year TDI plant at Kazincbarcika.
The TDI unit is now running at full operating rates to replenish stock levels, a source with BorsodChem said. It added that it would likely remain on sales allocation for April and May.
