SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp plans to start up its new 100,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) extraction unit by the end of June, a company source said.

“We have not confirmed the exact date but it will be end of June,” the source added.

The BD unit is expected to start up at the same time as the company starts a new 600,000 tonne/year No 6 naphtha cracker in Linyuan.

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.
