Indefinite shutdown for Kashima PX plant
22
Apr '08
A PX plant of Kashima Aromatics Company Limited is expected to remain shutdown for an indefinite period as a cloud of blazing flames engulfed the facility on this Sunday.

The fire started at around 4:05 PM and it took more than three hours for fire tenders to get control over the flare. No report of injury was registered.

Official spokesperson of the plant informed Fibre2fashion, “The fire erupted some where near the pump in the PX plant during a restart process. The plant was already closed for a week to resolve some minor technical problems; however, at present we cannot say when it will start its regular operation.”

The PX plant has the production capacity of 420,000 mt per year, and at present the facility is under repair.
