LONDON (ICIS)--Israel-based producer Carmel Olefins will begin the process of starting up its polyolefins and cracker at its site in Haifa over the weekend of 2-3 February following a planned maintenance shutdown that will have lasted around four weeks, a company source said on Wednesday.
“We plan to be fully operational by 8 February,” said the source.
Polymer production in January has been reduced by a series of planned and unplanned outages in Europe and the Middle East.
