LONDON (ICIS)--Borealis’s propane dehydrogenation (PDH) reactor operations at Kallo in Belgium are back on line and running at normal rates, following an extended outage, said a company source at the Austrian polyolefins company on Friday.

The PDH facilities restarted on 25 August following a shutdown, which began at the end of July, due to technical problems. The outage was originally expected to last for around two weeks, but had been later extended due to further technical difficulties.

The PDH reactor has the capacity to produce 240,000 tonnes/year of propylene from propane feedstock.
