SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Finolex Industries Ltd (FIL) plans to restart its 130,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) line at Ratnagiri this weekend, a source close to the company said on Friday.

The line has been shut in early August as storage of its feedstock vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) at the Ratnagiri port was prohibited during the monsoon season, the source said.

Clearance from port authorities for resuming operations at the 130,000 tonne/year VCM-based unit was delayed by a week this year, on account of late occurrence of monsoon, the source said.

FIL’s other 130,000 tonne/year PVC line at the site that feed on ethylene dichloride (EDC), meanwhile, is currently running at full capacity, the source said.
