The article reports on the plan of Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corp. (FCFC) to debottleneck its polypropylene (PP) plant in Mailiao, Taiwan. The debottlenecking project was feasible because its propylene feedstock would be increased after supplier Formosa Petrochemical Corp. starts up its new No. 3 cracker. The new cracker, which will supply 1.2 million tonnes/year of ethylene and 850,000 tonnes/year of propylene, is scheduled to start up on May 25, 2007.
