The article reports that chemicals company Basell plans to restart its idled polypropylene (PP) plant in Bayport, Texas, in response to rising demand. The start-up of the 220,000 tonne/year Spheripol plant is scheduled for the second quarter of 2008. Basell closed the facility in 2001 as part of wider PP cutbacks caused by excess capacity. The decision to restart the plant is based on growth of Basell's innovative products rather than forecast market growth, according to a company spokesman.
