LONDON (ICIS)--Polish fertilizer producer Pulawy will enter into a planned shutdown at its melamine plant in the middle of July for up to two and a half months, a company source said on Thursday.

“We will stop Melamine I for regular maintenance in the middle of July,” the source said.

It added that the initial plan was for the outage to last one month, but the outage will now be longer as the company will be modernising the unit.

“Today we decided to extend this period from one month to two or two and a half months, due to modernisation,” the source said.

The plant in Pulawy, eastern Poland, has an annual melamine output of 96,000 tonnes.

Melamine is a raw material in wood-adhesive resins and laminates.
