According to market sources, Dow Chemical restarted one of its three crackers in Terneuzen, the Netherlands after a scheduled maintenance that started in March and was initially expected to last until mid-April.

The company’s three crackers at the site have ethylene production capacities of 565,000 tons/year, 580,000 tons/year and 680,000 tons/year respectively.

Also, Ineos reportedly restarted its cracker in Rafnes, Norway after it was shut down as a safety precaution due to some production problems experienced at the petrochemical site since late April.

The cracker can produce 560,000 tons/year of ethylene.
