SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chemplast Sanmar Ltd’s 221,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant at Cuddalore in Tamil Nadu, India, is currently operating at 100% of capacity after it was restarted on 10 March, a company source said on Friday.

The maintenance turnaround at the plant started on 6 March, according to the source.

The company took two days to ramp up production to full capacity after it was restarted, the source said.

A shortage in feedstock VCM supply drove the producer to schedule the turnaround, according to a source close to the company.
