LONDON (ICIS)--Borealis will take its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility at Kallo near Antwerp in Belgium into a planned maintenance turnaround next week, a company spokesperson said on Thursday.

The turnaround at the 480,000 tonnes/year propylene unit will last until early March.

The PDH suffered some technical issues in late October through to mid-November which led to its shutdown, interrupting preparations to cover the maintenance.

Propylene supply is regarded as tight in Europe following strike-related outages at French producer Total Petrochemicals in December, the tendency for more light feedstock cracking and better-than-expected demand.
