According to market sources, Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics is planning to shut an HDPE plant in Mailiao in March for a scheduled maintenance. The plant is able to produce 320,000 tons/year of HDPE and is expected to remain offline for three weeks.

Meanwhile, the company is also planning to shut its LDPE/EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) swing plant for a three week-turnaround in February. The plant has a production capacity of 235,000 tons/year and is currently reported to be producing EVA due to healthier economics for this product.

The company’s Mailiao complex also houses an LLDPE plant with a production capacity of 260,000 tons/year.
