SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics plans to shut down two monoethylene glycol (MEG) units in Mailiao this week for a scheduled turnaround, a company source said on Wednesday.
“We will shut down two of our four MEG units very soon, but which two will be shut is still unknown,” the source said.
The turnaround will last around one month, the source said, adding that the company’s contract supply in September will be cut by 25%.
The company has four MEG units with a combined capacity of 1.8m tonnes/year.
