According to market sources, Taiwan’s Oriental Petrochemical Taiwan Co. Ltd. (OPTC) is planning to start up its 1.5 million tons/year PTA plant in October.

The commissioning was reportedly completed in early September and the new plant currently awaits government approval.

The company runs two other PTA plants located in Taoyuan. According to sources, the No 1 plant is likely to be shut down once the larger plant starts operations. The unit is able to produce 400,000 tons/year of PTA while the No 2 plant has a production capacity of 500,000 tons/year.
