FPC restarted its ACN plant this week, but the source did not mention the actual date. “We have already restarted [the ACN plant] and are increasing its operating rate gradually. All things are going well,” the source said in Mandarin.
The fire was caused by a pipeline leak, but it had no impact on the plants at the site as most of them were immediately shut down when the fire occurred, the source added.
