SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Hanwha Chemical will restart its 360,000 tonne/year vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant in Yeosu on Friday after a week-long scheduled maintenance, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The shutdown was conducted in tandem with a production cut at Yeochun Naphtha Cracking Centre (YNCC), which supplies ethylene to Hanwha’s vinyl operations.

Hanwha is South Korea’s second largest VCM producer with a total capacity of 590,000 tonnes/year.
