SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics is planning to shut its 130,000 tonne/year No 4 bisphenol-A (BPA) line at Mailiao on 15 February for a scheduled turnaround, a company source said on Friday.

The shutdown is expected to last for 45 days, according to the source.

Its No 2 and No 3 lines at the site, both with a BPA capacity of 100,000 tonnes/year, will be scheduled for maintenance in second half of 2013, the source added.

Currently, the company is running its No 2, No 3 and No 4 lines at full capacity, the source said.

Its 90,000 tonne/year No 1 line at the same site is currently shut, but this should not have an impact on the market as the line’s BPA is for captive use, the source said without elaborating further.
