Philippine Polypropylene extends turnaround, JG Summit starts shutdown
The company experienced an unplanned outage in mid-September due to a technical issue and had earlier planned to restart the plant last week. The unit has an initial capacity of 160,000/tons/year which could be increased 225,000 tons/year, according to the company website.
Meanwhile, another Philippines producer – JG Summit – has started maintenance at its PP and PE units at Batangas, the sources said.
The company produces 190,000 tons/year of PP and 325,000 tons/year of HDPE/LLDPE at its facilities. The plants will be offline for two months from October to the end of November.
