SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Liaherd Chemical Industry is running its melamine plant at Tai’ An at 100% after a 15-day scheduled maintenance shutdown since the end of April, a company source said late on Tuesday.
The 30,000 tonne/year production line resumed operations on 12 May but spot supplies are short, according to the company official.
The company has two other production lines at their Zibo plant. The total capacity of the three lines is 100,000 tonnes/year.
Melamine is largely used to produce adhesive resins for wood panels in the construction industry.
