Asahi Kasei Mitsubishi restarts Mizushima naphtha cracker

TOKYO, Jan 30 (Reuters) -

* Asahi Kasei Mitsubishi Chemical Ethylene Corp, a joint venture of Asahi Kasei Corp and Mitsubishi Chemical Corp , restarted a naphtha cracker in Mizushima, western Japan, on Jan. 28, it said on Wednesday.

* The company shut the naphtha cracker on Jan. 14 after a malfunction in the refrigerant system. The restart was delayed by a few days due to a glitch in the steam system.

* The naphtha cracker has a production capacity of 567,000 tonnes a year without any turnaround and 496,000 tonnes with turnaround, the firm said. (Reporting by Yuka Obayashi, Editing by Subhranshu Sahu)
