Indian fibre maker Grasim Industries has re-opened its Nagda (Madhya Pradesh) staple fibre plant following the onset of the monsoon and the arrival of water in the Nagda reservoir.

Production at this plant and its chlor-alkali facility is expected to be back to full capacity by 30 June, the company says.

Closures like this have happened before for Grasim, which saves up stocks of staple fibre and increases output at other plants to compensate for the loss of production.
