SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha (ISK) plans on Wednesday to restart its 60,000 tonne/year titanium dioxide (TiO2) plant at Tuas, Singapore, after a two-week maintenance turnaround that began in late July, a source close to the company said.
Once the plant has been fully restarted, ISK will run it at full capacity, the source added.
The company also operates a 160,000 tonne/year TiO2 plant at Yokkaichi, in central Japan, which has been scheduled for a three-week maintenance shutdown in October.
Spot TiO2 prices in Asia were assessed on 6 August at $2,550–2,700/tonne (€1,938–2,052/tonne) CFR (cost & freight) Asia, ICIS data showed.
