SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Nan Ya Plastics has yet to achieve on-spec production at its 720,000 tonne/year No 4 monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit in Mailiao after restarting the facility on 9 July following a three-month turnaround, a company source said on Wednesday.

“We restarted the unit, but has yet to achieve on-spec production,” the source said.

The plant was shut in early April for a catalyst change, but the shutdown has since been twice extended from mid-May because of slower-than-expected repair works at its reactor.

Nan Ya said it will continue supplying to its Chinese customers with reduced volumes in July because of low inventories.
