PET production resumes in Lopburi, Thailand after floods

April 27/2012

(plasteurope) -- Thailands Indorama Ventures (IVL, Bangkok) restarted its PET plant in Lopburi / Thailand after it was forced to stop production in September because of floods. Output will be ramped up and full operating rates are expected in May 2012, the company said.

IVL said its Petform packaging arm, which is co-located with the PET plant, is expected to come online shortly afterwards.

The Lopburi PET plant has capacity to produce 178,000 t/y, and produces mainly bottle grade PET for fast-moving consumer goods companies in Thailand. IVL also can turn out 91,000 t/y of PET at its site in Rayong, on Thailands east coast.
