PRAGUE (ICIS news)--TVK said its olefin-2 cracker at Tiszaujvaros, Hungary, returned to full production on Monday after the plant went down unexpectedly on 22 September.

Laszlo Piry, deputy chief executive, added that the company had not declared force majeure on supplies since the plant was taken down after engineers discovered a standard technical problem.

Olefin-2’s nameplate capacities are 250,000 tonnes/year for ethylene and 125,000 tonnes/year for propylene.
