SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea's Samsung Fine Chemicals has delayed the start-up of its new 60,000 tonne/year epichlorohydrin (ECH) plant in Ulsan by a week to 23-24 September because of technical issues, a company source said on Tuesday.
The plant was originally scheduled to start production on 17-18 September.
The new plant will double the company’s ECH capacity at the site to 120,0000 tonnes/year, the source said.
Samsung Fine Chemicals’ existing 60,000 tonne/year ECH plant at the site is currently operating at full capacity, the source said.
The company is the largest ECH producer in South Korea.
