According to market sources, South Korea’s Taekwang Industrial is planning to shut its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit at Ulsan on January 16. The unit has a production capacity of 250,000 tons/year and is expected to be offline for a month.

The company had initially been planning to shut its PDH unit in the third quarter of this year, but the company decided to bring forward the shutdown date as current production economics are unfavorable. The company is planning to change the catalyst so as to increase propylene yield from the unit during the shutdown.
