Nan Ya request to restart plants rejected

July 18/2011

(Taipei Times) -- The Yunlin County Government yesterday rejected applications by Nan Ya Plastics Corp to resume production at two factories in its compound in Haifeng, Mailiao Township, although it gave the green light to restarting two other factories earlier in the week.

The Haifeng compound houses five Nan Ya factories that produce several key textile materials and petrochemical intermediaries, such as 1,4-butylene glycol (BG), ethylene glycol (EG) and bisphenol-A (BPA). The county government had ordered the five factories shut down on June 1 in the wake of fires on May 12 and May 18.

The county government convened a 13-member review committee to go over Nan Yas plans to restart operations at its BPA and BG factories.

On Monday, the county approved Nan Yas applications to resume operations at two EG plants in the Haifeng compound. They are expected to resume production tomorrow.

Nan Ya is the worlds fourth-largest EG producer, accounting for 9 percent of global supply. The Haifeng plants boast annual capacity of 1.8 million tonnes of EG.
