SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya said it will have to cut more than half of its regular monoethylene glycol (MEG) allocations to China in June because of extension of an ongoing shutdown at is 720,000 tonne/year unit in Mailiao, a company source said on Friday.
Nan Ya exports around 100,000 tonnes/month of MEG to China.
“We are looking to restart the unit in mid-June at the earliest,” the source said.
The company has postponed the restart schedule of the plant twice from initial plan in mid-May because of slower-than-expected repair works, the source said.
