SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemical is running its 280,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Kashima at 100%, a company source said on Wednesday.
“The plant is running at full capacity at the moment,” the source said.
The plant was restarted on 21 June and the on-spec product was achieved on 23 June, the source added.
The MEG unit was taken off line after a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami hit northeast Japan on 11 March.
