According to market sources, Czech petrochemicals producer Unipetrol has restarted its steam cracker with a capacity of 544,000 tons/year at Litvinov following a shutdown that lasted more than a year.

The company had shut the cracker on August 13, 2015 due to a leakage and repairs of the steam cracker lasted for more than ten months.

The site also has a production capacity of 320,000 tons/year of HDPE and 290,000 tons/year of PP. These plants reportedly resumed production a month after the shutdown through the company’s purchases of feedstocks.
