SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp plans to start up its new 600,000 tonne/year No 6 naphtha cracker at Linyuan in June this year, a company source said on Wednesday.
“Our target is 1 June,” the source said.
CPC had previously stated the plant’s expected start-up date to be in June or July 2013.
The company had mothballed its 230,000 tonne/year No 3 naphtha cracker at the same site in June 2012 to make way for the new cracker.
CPC also runs a 385,000 tonne/year No 4 naphtha cracker at Linyuan and a 500,000 tonne/year No 5 naphtha cracker at Kaohsiung.
