SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s Ube-Maruzen Polyethylene will be able to restart its 147,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) and 50,000 tonne/year linear LDPE (LLDPE) plants at Chiba as soon as power supply to the facilities are restored, a company source said on Thursday.
Ube-Maruzen Polyethylene’s plants were shut in the aftermath of the earthquake which struck the country on 11 March, the source said.
The plants have enough ethylene feedstock supply, but cannot be restarted because of power shortages, he said.
