LONDON (ICIS)--Planned maintenance at Russian fertilizer producer EuroChem’s melamine plant is expected to last until the middle of the month, a source from the company confirmed on Tuesday.
“Maintenance is ongoing,” the source said. “And we will be off at least until the middle of September.”
The turnaround at the facility in Nevinnomyssk began on 14 August.
EuroChem has the capacity to produce 50,000 tonnes/year of melamine.
Melamine is combined with formaldehyde to produce melamine resin, a durable thermosetting plastic used in Formica, melamine dinnerware, laminate flooring and dry erase boards.
