LONDON(ICIS)--Czech producer Spolchemie has started its second perchloroethylene (perc) production campaign following the first one which ran from 26 September-4 October, a company source said on Tuesday.

The source confirmed it had restarted its 15,000 tonne/year perc plant in Usti nad Labem on Monday this week and the campaign will run until 3 November.

Previously, the company said it will gauge demand levels at the end of October before deciding how long the production campaign will last.

“We will run [our plant] for two weeks,” the source said. “The demand levels are more or less in line with our expectations.”

The company had originally planned a single campaign in October but split production to two separate cycles due to minor technical issues.

Other European perc producers include Dow Chemical, Solvay and Anwil.
