The cracker was shut on November 1 for a planned maintenance which was expected to last for 45 days. It was initially planned to be restarted on December 15.
The complex, which is the largest petrochemical complex in Brazil, has two steam crackers with a combined capacity of 1.28 million tons/year of ethylene. It also produces PP, PE and PVC, which were affected by the shutdown at the cracker, according to sources.
