MELBOURNE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Chang Chun Plastics has restarted its phenol/acetone plant and its downstream bisphenol A (BPA) unit in Kaohsiung following a turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.

The phenol/acetone plant, which can produce 300,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 186,000 tonnes/year of acetone, were restarted following a month-long maintenance, the source added.

Its 135,000 tonne/year No 1 BPA line at the same site was brought back on line following a 40-day turnaround that began in late September, the source said.

Chang Chun is also ramping up the run rates at its 135,000 tonne/year No 2 BPA line, which was operating at a reduced rate in October, the source added.
