HOUSTON (ICIS)--Braskem's polypropylene (PP) plant in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, is operating at normal levels on Friday after the company brought the unit back up following an outage after Hurricane Sandy, a company spokesperson said.

The company took the 345,000 tonne/year PP unit down on 29 October in preparation for the hurricane. While the plant sustained no major damage during the storm, the facility remained off line because of power outages and logistics problems in the region following the storm.

During the downtime, Braskem completed some maintenance on the unit, the company said.
