SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Ming Dih Group is on track to complete the capacity expansion of its 30,000 tonne/year expandable polystyrene (EPS) plant in Bangkok, Thailand, in early April, a company source said.
The capacity of the EPS facility will be expanded to 40,000 tonnes/year, the source added.
“The expansion began in early March and we are hoping to conduct trial runs in late March or early April,” the source said.
The other EPS maker in Thailand is Integrated Integrated Refinery Petrochemical Complex (IPRC).
EPS is made into styrofoam, which is used in packaging as well as insulation panels in buildings and roads.
