LONDON (ICIS)--Sasol-Huntsman has restarted its maleic anhydride (MA) plant at Moers, Germany, ahead of schedule following the completion of planned maintenance work, a company source said on Friday.

Originally expected to last 10 days, the company stopped production at the plant on 9 August and restarted it during the evening of 12 August, the source said.

“Everything went well and today our plant is running at full capacity,” the source added.

Sasol-Huntsman shut down the plant as part of necessary construction to bring on stream 45,000 tonnes/year of capacity in January 2011.

The plant’s current capacity is 60,000 tonnes/year.
