SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Chemicals & Fibres Corp (FCFC) plans to restart its two styrene monomer (SM) units in Kaohsiung earlier than expected in end-September, a company source on Wednesday.
“We are looking at restating in end September hopefully,” he said.
Healthy SM market may have prompted the early restart of the two plants, market players said.
FCFC also operates a 600,000 tonnes/year No 3 SM plant in Kaohsiung that is currently running at full capacity, the company source said.
