According to market sources, Brazil’s Braskem shut its Camacari aromatics reformer unit in Bahia on April 20-21 due to a planned maintenance.

The maintenance will reportedly last for about 30-35 days while it is not yet known which production will be impacted.

The Camacari complex, which is the largest petrochemical complex in Brazil, has two steam crackers with a combined capacity of 1.28 million tons/year ethylene. It can also produce PP, PE and PVC as well as 427,000 tons/year of benzene and 203,000 tons/year of PX.
