SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Yeochun NCC (YNCC) has increased the operating rates at its three naphtha crackers in Yeosu to 93% capacity in June, up by three percentage points from last month, said a source familiar with the situation on Wednesday.
YNCC had raised the cracker operating rates from 10 May. Prior to that, run rates at the three crackers – with a combined ethylene nameplate capacity of 1.9m tonnes/year – were at 85% capacity as Daelim Industrial Co’s derivative polyethylene (PE) units remained shut following an explosion at its premises.
