LONDON (ICIS)--BorsodChem’s methyl di-p-phenylene isocyanate (MDI) M2 facility in Kazincbarcika, Hungary, is running again following the resolution of recent technical problems and after maintenance work, a company source said on Tuesday.

The MDI M2 unit resumed output last week and stocks are low, but the company is working on replenishing them.

“Orders are all being met and we are getting back on track,” said the company source.

In early September, the unit was in restart phase following the completion of planned maintenance work, which was scheduled to take place during August.

However, a technical failure forced the MDI M2 plant to shut down for a few days and repair work was carried out.

The MDI M2 plant has a nameplate capacity of 260,000 tonnes/year, following recent debottlenecking.

The MDI M1 plant, also at the same Hungarian site, which has the capacity to manufacture 60,000 tonnes/year of MDI, has been  idled since 2009 for market reasons.
