SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Supreme Petrochem’s (SPL) high impact polystyrene (HIPS) line at Ratnagiri in Maharashtra has been shut since January this year because of technical problems, a company source said.

SPL has two HIPS lines and one GPPS (general-purpose PS) line, which have a nameplate capacity of 90,000 tonnes/year respectively.

“We have no idea when the HIPS [line] will restart. That would depend how well the repairs are progressing,” the source added.

“We still have two to three months of backlogs to clear but we are still selling to our key customers,” he added.
