SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Korea Engineering Plastics (KEP) has increased the capacity of its polyoxymethylene (POM) or polyacetal plant in Ulsan by a third to 140,000 tonnes/year early this month, a company source said on Tuesday.
This was achieved through a debottlenecking process at the plant, which had a 105,000 tonne/year capacity previously, the source said without providing the current run rate of the unit.
POM has applications in automotive, electric and electronic components.
KEP is a joint venture of US-based Celanese and Japan's Mitsubishi Gas Chemical and Mitsubishi Corp.
