SINGAPORE (ICIS)--SCG-DOW restarted its 390,000 tonne/year propylene oxide (PO) plant at the Asia Industrial Estate site near Map Ta Phut, Thailand, in the late evening of 17 December, a company source said on Tuesday.
However, the PO plant’s operating rate cannot be confirmed for now, the source added.
The production facility employs environmentally sustainable hydrogen-peroxide-to-propylene-oxide (HPPO) technology.
SCG-DOW Group is a joint venture between US-based Dow Chemical and Thailand’s Siam Cement Group (SCG).
