SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Ming Dih Group plans to expand its expandable polystyrene
(EPS) plant in Bangkok, Thailand, in the third quarter of 2014, a company source said on Thursday.
The expansion next year will lift the plant’s capacity by 10,000 tonnes/year to 50,000 tonnes/year.
The 40,000 tonne/year facility underwent an expansion
of 10,000 tonnes/year in March this year.
“The additional requirement for feedstock styrene
monomer (SM) will be sourced locally,” the source added.
The company operates another 180,000 tonne/year EPS unit in Taiwan and a 100,000 tonne/year unit in China.By: Clive Ong+65 6780 4359
