A source close to Taiwan’s Lee Chang Yung (LCY) Group reported that the company is smoothly operating their PP plant in Kaoshiung after they received approval from the City Government for a three-month test run in January.

LCY is currently running its plant at 30% of capacity as per its agreement with the government and is currently primarily focused on producing PP copolymer.

LCY had shut their PP plant indefinitely following a pipeline explosion on August 1, 2014. Following the explosion, the company applied to governmental bodies in Kaoshiung in order to resume operations. The government approved LCY’s request, but stipulated that the company will be able to operate their plant for three months at only 1/3 of their previous capacity. The company needs to make another application in order to raise their operating rates.

LCY’s Kaohsiung PP plant houses two production lines which have a combined capacity of 360,000 tons/year.
