Formosa Plastics completes maintenance at PP units

November 15/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Formosa Plastics, part of Formosa Petrochemical (FPCC), has restarted its two polypropylene (PP) units following a maintenance turnaround, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the company has resumed operations at the units on October 30, 2018. The units remained under maintnance for about three weeks.

Located at Ningbo in China, the two units have a production capacity of 170,000 mt/year and 280,000 mt/year each.

As MRC reported previously, FPCC undertook an emergency shutdown at its No. 1 cracker in Mailiao on March 19, 2018 owing to technical issues. The plant remained off-line for around one day. Located at Mailiao in Taiwan, the No. 1 cracker has an ethylene production capacity of 700,000 mt/year, propylene production capacity of 350,000 mt/year and butadiene production capacity of 109,000 mt/year.

Formosa Petrochemical is involved primarily in the business of refining crude oil, selling refined petroleum products and producing and selling olefins (including ethylene, propylene, butadiene and BTX) from its naphtha cracking operations. Formosa Petrochemical is also the largest olefins producer in Taiwan and its olefins products are mostly sold to companies within the Formosa Group. Among the company's chemical products are paraxylene (PX), phenyl ethylene, acetone and pure terephthalic acid (PTA). The company's plastic products include acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resins, polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP) and panlite (PC).
