SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemical is keeping its 120,000 tonne/year bisphenol-A (BPA) plant at Kurosaki running despite an 9.0-magnitude quake that hit Japan on 11 March, a company source said on Tuesday.
The plant can produce 250,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 150,000 tonnes/year of acetone.
Mitsubishi Chemical is mulling production rate cuts at the Kurosaki BPA unit due to a lack of feedstock phenol and acetone supply, the source added.
