DFE Chemical to bring on-stream PS plant in Manila by mid-October

October 07/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- DFE Chemical is in plans to restart its polystyrene (PS) plant following an unplanned outage, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in the Philippines informed that the company is likely to resume operations at the plant in mid-October, 2019. The plant was shut in 2H August 2019 owing to bearish market conditions.

Located in Manila, the Philippines, the plant has a production capacity of 30,000 mt/year.

As MRC wrote before, DFE Chemical restarted its PS plant in Manila following a maintenance turnaround on April 2, 2018. The plant was shut for maintenance in mid-December 2017.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated consumption of PS and styrene plastics was 39,130 tonnes in July 2019, down by 1% year on year (39,600 tonnes in 2018). Consumption of PS and styrene plastics in the country was 287,370 tonnes in January-July 2019, up by 2% year on year.
