Borealis will permanently shut its melamine low-pressure plant

June 22/2011

(ICIS) -- Borealis will permanently shut its 20 KTa melamine low-pressure plant at Linz in Austria on 27 June, the Austria-based polyolefins maker said on Wednesday. The company earlier decommissioned a 10 KTa melamine low-pressure plant at the Linz site in January last year, Borealis said in a statement. The decision to decommission the plants was made as investments in melamine low-pressure plants do not pay off in Europe, the statement said.

Major customers will be switching their production to high-pressure melamine, Borealis said, without elaborating further. Customers who can only use low-pressure melamine will continue to be supplied through the 20 KTa plant in the meantime, it added.
