SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp is unlikely to start up its new 600,000 tonne/year No 6 cracker in Linyuan this week, because approval from the Taiwanese government is still pending, company officials said on Monday.
“We have not done test runs at the cracker yet, [as it is still] pending government approval,” one of the company officials said.
Trial runs at the cracker will last around 20 days, according to a company official. CPC Corp would then shut the facility following the trial runs until it obtains regulatory approval to start commercial operations, the source added.
