SINGAPORE (ICIS) -- Japan’s Zeon Corp restarted all its synthetic rubber plants earlier this week following a two-month turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.
“We resumed production at all the synthetic rubber plants earlier this week,” the source said, without elaborating further.
The company operates a 110,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant, a 65,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant and a 60,000 tonne/year nitrile rubber (NBR) plant at Yamaguchi in western Japan.
Zeon shut down the plants in the middle of May for maintenance.
