Hungary's MOL has successfully fed propylene oxide into a pilot plant at a EUR 1.3 billion polyol production base it is building in Tiszaujvaros (NE Hungary), the oil and gas company said on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The successful test is "another milestone" in the construction of the complex, MOL said.
Large-scale test production at the base is expected to start in the second half of 2023, it added.
The base will have the capacity to turn out 205,000 tonnes of polyol a year.
Polyols are essential components used in the construction, insulation, furniture manufacturing, automotive and textile industries.
