In 2016, the plant continued pushing in Safety First, but unfortunately there was a severe accident suffered by a mechanic contractor, thus we have improved the procedures, permits and supervision on the nonroutine tasks. The plant was updated to start the tackifier production, helping to the high orders volume of the Genk plant. The new facility for wastewater treatment using solvent-based phenol extraction is on-going, thus it is expected to be operative during the first half 2017, which will reduce the operation cost.
