Correction: In the ICIS story headlined "Indonesia's Polyprima eyes PTA unit restart in Q1-Q2 2013" dated 9 November 2012, please read in the final paragraph ...polyester plant at Purwakarta... instead of ...polyester plant at the same site.... A corrected story follows.
The restartwill be put off by over one year as Indorama has been conducting plant modification at the unit, the source said.
Indorama Ventures acquired a 50% share in Polyprima in 2011.
Before that, the PTA plant had been kept idle since October 2007 because of financial problems.
Part of the PTA output will be fed into a new downstream 300,000 tonne/year polyester plant at Purwakarta, which is under construction, the source said.
