October 10/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hanwha Total Petrochemical is in plans to shut its No. 2 ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) plant for a brief maintenance, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in South Korea informed that the plant is likely to be taken off-line for maintenance on November 20, 2017. The plant is slated to remain shut for around 4-5 days.

Located at Daesan, South Korea, the No.2 plant has a production capacity of 280,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed before, in October 2016, Hanwha Total Petrochemical expanded the production capacity of its low density polyethylene (LDPE)/ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) swing plant. Thus, the production capacity of the existing plant was increased by 40,000 mt/year. Located at Daesan in South Korea, the swing plant had a total capacity of 240,000 mt/years.

Hanwha Group is one of the largest business conglomerate in South Korea. Founded in 1952 as Korea Explosives Inc., the group has grown into a large multi-profile business conglomerate, with diversified holdings stretching from explosives, their original business, to retail to financial services.
