Mar '09
According to reports emanating from the market, Japan Polypropylene Corp, which operates 12 Polypropylene (PP) plants with a combined capacity of 1.08 metric tons per annum, has delayed the start-up of its new PP plant at Kashima.

The new 300,000 PP plant at Kashima was originally expected to go on-stream in March. Fibre2fashion spoke to a company official, who confirmed the news of the delay and said that it was now expected to start in September 2009.

He said, “A new PP plant, which has a production capacity of 300,000 metric tons per year, will now start operating at Kashima, from September 2009, which was originally planned to go on-stream in mid-March, a delay of six months”.

He added by saying, “Right now, from the total combined capacity of all 12 PP plants of 1.08 metric tons, all plants are running at reduced production capacity of 55 percent, due to economic slow down and reduced orders”.
