Earthquake damage forces shutdown of Mitsubishi’s ethylene plant in Ibaraki Prefecture

18-Mar-11
Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. has been forced to halt operation of its plant in Ibaraki Prefecture due to earthquake related damage. This plant, with 830,000 tpa capacity, is Japan's largest ethylene production capacity. As an aftermath of the earthquake, the piping was warped and jetties used to transfer products were destroyed. Repair work has been hampered by continuing aftershocks and the resumption of operations at the plant is not in sight.
