PPCL completes phenol and acetone expansion in Thailand

February 08/2016

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Thailand's PTT Phenol Company (PPCL) added 250,000 mt/year of phenol production capacity late 2015, a company source told TPS.

The company completed its Phenol 2 project that added a phenol capacity of 250,000 mt/year and an acetone capacity of 155,000 mt/year in Map Ta Phut, Thailand.

Prior to the expansion, the company had an existing capacity of 200,000 mt/year of phenol and 124,000 mt/year of acetone.

As MRC informed previously, initially the company scheduled the start-up of a new phenol plant in mid-November 2015.

PPCL is a subsidiary of Thailand's state-linked energy company PTT.

PTT Global Chemical is a leading player in the petrochemical industry and owns several petrochemical facilities with a combined capacity of 8.45 million tonnes a year.
