SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC) has restarted its acrylic acid (AA)/acrylate ester plants located at Kaohsiung on 8 December as planned, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plants were initially shut because of a scheduled power shutdown at the facility ordered by the Taiwanese government.
The company produces about 51,000 tonnes/year of crude AA, 30,000 tonnes/year of glacial AA, 40,000 tonnes/year of butyl acrylate (butyl-A), 30,000 tonnes/year of methyl acrylate (methyl-A) and 20,000 tonnes/year of ethyl acrylate (ethyl-A), according to the source.
The company is currently running the units at “normal” rates, the source said without further elaboration.
