The 2-EH unit is located at Mailiao and has a production capacity of 205,000 mt/year. The unit was shut down unexpectedly February 12 due to a technical issue, with a total production loss of 12,000 mt.
"We are only running at 80% of our operating rate at the moment, but we will reach full output capacity by end-March," said a company source.
Nan Ya Plastics is the largest 2-EH producer in Taiwan
