SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s TPI Polene has swung production at its 158,000 tonne/year ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)/ low density polyethylene (LDPE) swing plant at Map Ta Phut to produce LDPE at full tilt since 21 January for a duration of around two weeks, according to a company official.
The plant can produce 75,000-78,000 tonnes/year of EVA at one of its two tubular reactors, according to the official.“The plant has been producing LDPE full tilt since 21 January because of a local market shortage of the polymer,” the official said, adding that the plant may resume EVA production by early February.
