Mitsubishi Gas increases polyacetal capacity in Thailand

TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsubishi Gas Chemical will boost its production capacity of polyacetal in Thailand from 55,000 mt/year to 100,000 mt/year by the end of March 2013, said the company. Commercial operations at the new capacity would begin from the second quarter of 2013.


The capacity of MGC’s 55,000 mt/year polyacetal plant at Map Ta Phut will be raised to 60,000 mt/year after debottlenecking is completed. The company said it will also be building a 40,000 mt/year plant at the same site. The operator of the existing plant is Thai Polyactal Company, in which MGC has a 70 per cent stake, with the remaining 30 per cent held by TOA Dovechem Industries.
