According to market sources, an explosion took place at Taiwan’s Formosa Chemicals & Fiber Corporation’s (FCFC) No 1 styrene plant located at Mailiao due to technical issues on March 6.

4 employers were reportedly injured and the 250,000 tons/year capacity plant was shut after the incident and the restart date is unclear for now.

A Taiwanese trader commented, “The recent blast is not considered to have a major impact on the styrene production of the plant. Meanwhile, FCFC has a scheduled maintenance in April and it seems like they may have to put it forward.”
