“Mitsui Chemical has reduced production capacity rates at its Sakai naphtha cracker to 80%, due to slowdown in demand from the domestic market,” a company official informed Fibre2fashion.
He further said that another naphtha cracker located at Chiba, is likely to undergo a maintenance turnaround next year.
The naphtha crackers at Sakai and Chiba, each have a production capacity of 780,000 tons per year.
