LONDON (ICIS)--Output has been normalised at BorsodChem’s toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) T2 facility in Kazincbarcika, Hungary, and the force majeure on TDI supplies from the site has been lifted, a company source said on Friday
Production at the TDI T2 facility in Hungary had resumed, as confirmed earlier in the week, following the completion of recent maintenance work. The company source noted that it took a few days before optimal output at the TDI T2 unit was achieved.
The TDI T2 plant had been down since late July due to a combination of planned maintenance and technical problems. The unit had failed to restart at the end of August and a force majeure declaration on TDI supplies at the site had been put in place as a result.
The design capacity at the TDI T2 plant is 200,000 tonnes/year, according to the company source. The smaller TDI T1 facility - also at the Hungarian site - remains idled since August 2011 for market and profitability reasons.
