SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics is planning to restart its 100,000 tonne/year No 2 bisphenol A (BPA) line at Mailiao in late August after shutting it for a scheduled maintenance on 15 July, a company source said on Monday.


Its 90,000 tonne/year No 1 line, which was originally scheduled to resume normal operations on 15 July after its shutdown on 1 June, is still under maintenance. The shutdown was extended to the end of July, the source added.


No further details about the extension were immediately available.


As Nanya is the biggest exporter to the Chinese market, the shutdown may lead to tight regional supply in July and August, according to market players.


Its 100,000 tonne/year No 3 line is now running at 60% capacity while the producer’s 130,000 tonne/year No 4 line is currently running at full capacity, the source said.
