SINGAPORE (ICIS)--PVC Malaysia is operating its 150,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) facility at Kerteh in Terengganu state at close to 80% capacity following a restart on 6 October, a company source said on Tuesday.

The PVC plant was shut on 24 August for a scheduled maintenance turnaround.

The producer initially planned to resume production on 23 September, but had to delay the restart because of technical issues.   

PVC Malaysia is a subsidiary of Malaysia’s state-owned energy firm PETRONAS.
