Spain’s Repsol begins maintenance at its Puertollano complex
Previously, the company announced that they would close their 105,000 tons/year HDPE plant due to the unit’s lack of profitability and reduce their steam cracker capacity from the current 250,000 tons/year to around 100,000 tons/year. As part of the rationalization of the site, Repsol will also expand its capacity to produce high value added products such as EVA and polyols.
