SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Japan’s Denki Kagaku (Denka) has plans to shut its Chiba polystyrene plants (PS) in June 2010 and its Singapore plants in March for maintenance turnaround, a company source said on Friday.

In Japan, the company operates a 278,000 tonne/year PS plant under the name Toyo Styrene. The facility was scheduled for a two-to-three-week maintenance period in June of next year, the source said.

The plant is a joint-venture between Denka, Nippon Steel Chemical Co, Ltd and Daicel Chemical Industries, Ltd.
