Formosa shut down manufacturing operations of an isononyl alcohol plant

June 07/2011

(China Post) -- The Formosa Plastics Group (FPG) finally shut down yesterday the manufacturing operations of an isononyl alcohol plant at the group's petrochemical complex in Mailiao area of Yunlin County in southwestern Taiwan in accordance with industrial plant safety procedures. The isononyl alcohol plant is among the five petrochemical plants of Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, an affiliate of the FPG, ordered to close for inspection following successive fires on May 12 and 18.

Top administrators at Yunlin County Government were on hand to see the machinery equipment eventually grind to a halt at the plant, almost two months after the latest fire at the sprawling Mailiao petrochemical complex, also known as Taiwan's No. 6 naphtha cracking complex.

The high-profile presence of the officials was aimed at demonstrating the county government's determination to force the FPG to improve its industrial and manufacturing operations to prevent similar industrial hazards from occurring in the future.
