SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Lotte Daesan Petrochemical Corp will continue to run its monoethylene glycol (MEG) lines at Daesan at 70% in December due to poor Asian demand, a company source said on Thursday.
The Daesan facility in western Korea comprising two lines with a 640,000 tonne/year combined capacity had its output reduced to 70% from early November.
MEG is used to make polyester fibres and yarns and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) chips.
