Indorama restarts one of two PET lines in Rotterdam, FM still in place
The company had to declare force majeure on PET supplies as a result of technical issues that took place in the latter part of November. The force majeure is likely to remain in place until the second line at the site resumes smooth operation, according to sources.
According to the company’s website, the facility has an older plant with a 190,000 tons/year production capacity, while the newer line can produce over 200,000 tons/year of PET.
