Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation is set to restart its monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant as well as its No.2 naphtha cracker next week.
 
“The MEG plant was shut for maintenance turnaround on May 3, 2014, and it is expected to be restarted on July 1, 2014,” a company official told fibre2fashion.
 
The MEG plant located at Kashima in Japan has production capacity of 280,000 mt/year.
 
This year, Mitsubishi has carried out restructuring of its naphtha cracking facility at Kashima. As part of restructuring, the company has permanently shut the No. 1 cracker, which had a production capacity of 390,000 tons/year on May 3, 2014. The company also shut its No.2 naphtha cracker on May 9 with an aim to increase its ethylene production capacity from 490,000 tons/year to 540,000 tons/year.
 
“The No.2 naphtha cracker is also expected to be restarted on July 1, 2014. It will have ethylene production capacity of 540,000 mt/year after the turnaround,” the official further said.
