SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Hanwha Chemical Corp plans to shut one line at its 360,000 tonne/year vinyl chloride (monomer) (VCM) plant at Yeosu at the end of September for 20 days, a company source said on Thursday.
The company will shut the 170,000 tonne/year line for maintenance, while the 190,000 tonne/year line will continue to operate at full capacity during the period, the source added.
VCM supply is expected to be tight in September as a result of scheduled plant turnarounds in northeast Asia, market sources said.
