SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) is running its low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Vadodara, west India, at 100% capacity following a week-long outage, a company source said on Friday.

The 40,000 tonne/year LDPE plant restarted on 7 October, and was previously taken off line on 1 October because of technical issues.

With the restart of RIL’s LDPE unit, Indian players said they are expecting the tightness in LDPE film to be relieved.
