Taiwan’s Lee Chang Yung restarts No.3 PP plant in Kaohsiung
The company had shut its No.3 and No.4 PP lines upon the request of the government following an underground pipeline explosion in August 2014. Due to a shortage of propylene, the company is reportedly unable to restart its No.4 PP plant.
According to sources, the No.4 PP line will come online when the company starts to use their underground pipeline for propylene deliveries. The No.4 plant has a capacity of 250,000 tons/year.
