Taiwan’s LCY receives approval for restart of its PP plant
Following the explosion, LCY applied to governmental bodies in Kaoshiung on September 25 and November 19, 2014 in order to resume operations. With this approval from the Committee of the Resumption Review, the company will operate their plant for three months and will be able to produce at only 1/3 of their previous capacity, which enable LCY to produce around 10,000 tons/month.
According to the city government’s decision, the company will need to make another application if they want to resume production at a higher operating rate. Reports stated that an application for the resumption of regular operating rates would be evaluated more strictly by the government.
LCY’s Kaohsiung PP plant houses two production lines which have a combined capacity of 400,000 tons/year.
