SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC) is currently running its 100,000 tonne/year epichlorohydrin (ECH) unit in Mailiao at around 80-90% of capacity after restarting the unit this week, a company source said on Tuesday.

The plant was shut down in early August for scheduled maintenance.

Demand for ECH is still weak given persistent oversupply in the regional market, particularly in China, market sources said.
