Hong Kong Petrochemical to shut PS plant for maintenance in Hong Kong

December 20/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hong Kong Petrochemical is likely to shut its polystyrene (PS) plant for maintenance turnaround, reported Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Hong Kong informed that the plant is likely to be shut in early February 2014. It is likely to remain off-stream for around one month.

Located in Yuen Long industrial estate, Hong Kong, the plant has a production capacity of 140,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed earlier, Concern Stirol (Gorlovka), the only polystyrene producer in Ukraine, suspended its PS production in late October, having stopped its capacities for a month long maintenance works. The plant was shut down because of the shortage of styrene monomer (SM), the main feedstock. However, the plant has not resumed production of styrene polymers after an outage in October yet. Thus, PS was not produced in November in Ukraine.
