At present, it is still unknown how long this line will stand idle at an enterprise with a capacity of 390 thousand tons of PP per year.

Earlier it was noted that at the end of March this year, Braskem already closed the PP plant in La Porte due to technical problems.

And last year the company carried out planned preventive maintenance at this plant from the beginning of October until the end of November.
