SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s SCG Plastics plans to restart its high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) plants at Map Ta Phut in early January, a source close to the company said on Friday.
The HDPE and PP plants – each with a 400,000 tonne/year capacity – were shut in the second half of November for scheduled maintenance, the source said.
The plant maintenance was in line with the turnaround schedule of the naphtha cracker operated by Map Ta Phut Olefins, a joint venture between Thailand's Siam Cement Group (SCG) and US major Dow Chemical.
SCG Plastics is part of the Thai conglomerate SCG.
