Mitsubishi Chemical Corp, a major petrochemical producer of Japan, had shut its naphtha cracker at its Mizushima plant in western Japan for an unplanned inspection. The company began shutting its plant Wednesday evening onwards after an unusual odour was noticed by company officials.

Fibre2fashion had at that time spoken to a senior official from Mitsubishi who had confirmed the outage but reasons were not attributed to the shutdown.

Today, a company official from Mitsubishi Chemicals informed fibre2fashion that “We have finished the inspection of the plant and found a little crack in a piping joint. We can restart the plant around 23rd October after replacing the joint.”

The company official added by saying that they will not raise the operating rate of the Kashima plant which was operating at 80-85 percent during the shutdown of the Mizushima cracker.

Mitsubishi Chemicals has three plants to manufacture ethylene. The Mizushima plant has an ethylene capacity of 450,000 Mt/annum, Kashima plant No.1 375,000 Mt/annum and Kashima plant No.2 453,000 Mt/annum.
