SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics plans to prolong the shutdown at its 720,000 tonne/year No 4 monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Mailiao until mid-March from an initial two-week plan as new technical issues were identified, a company source said.

The plant was shut on 18 February because its reactor was broken.

 The company’s No 1, No 2 and No 3 MEG plants, each with a capacity of 360,000 tonnes/year at the same site, are operating at 80-90% of capacity. Nan Ya has a shutdown plan for its No 1 unit, but the schedule has not been finalised, the source added.
