LONDON (ICIS)--BorsodChem’s methyl di-p-phenylene isocyanate (MDI)  facility at Kazincbarcika, Hungary, is back to normal operations, following recent planned maintenance work, as confirmed by a company source on Monday.

The MDI plant maintenance was carried out according to  schedule, said the company source.

The plant outage started at the end of July and was due to last for around four weeks, as previously mentioned by the same source.

BorsodChem has an operational capacity of 260,000 tonnes/year for its MDI M2 plant. Its MDI M1 unit also at the Hungarian site, which has a nameplate capacity of 60,000/tonne, has been idled since 2009 for market reasons.
