October 10/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nan Ya Plastics (part of Formosa Petrochemical) has undertaken a planned shutdown at its No.3 monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Taiwan informed that the unit was taken off-stream on October 5, 2017 for a maintenance turnaround. The unit will remain under turnaround for about one month.

Located in Mailiao, Taiwan, the No. 3 MEG unit has a production capacity of 360,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed before, on 25 May 2016, restarted MEG plant No. 4 in Thailand after a turnaround, which began on 17 April. Located at Mailiao in Taiwan, the plant has a production capacity of 720,000 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).
