Nippon Shokubai, which houses Japan's largest ethylene oxide (EO) production system and produces ethylene oxide and ethylene oxide derivatives at Kawasaki, is operating its Chidori EO plant at full production capacity.
 
At Kawasaki in Kanagawa Prefecture, the company has Chidori and Ukishima plants that produce EO. 
 
“The Chidori plant with 165,000 mt/year EO production capacity is presently running at 100 percent production capacity,” a company official told fibre2fashion.
 
When asked about the other plant, the official said, “The Ukishima plant with 160,000 mt/year EO capacity is under maintenance turnaround from mid-August and is scheduled to remain shut till end of September.”
 
In addition to EO, at the Kawasaki production base, the company produces mono ethylene glycol (MEG) and other derivatives like ethanolamines (EA) and glycol ether (GE). MEG production capacity is about 150,000 mt/year.
