SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Daesan MMA (DMMA) plans to restart its 90,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant and its two methacrylic acid (MAA) lines of 8,000 tonnes/year each at Yeosu on 28 October, a company source said on Friday.

The plant and two lines were shut down on 18 October for a 10-day turnaround, he added.

"Inventories are drawing down due to the shutdown, and we will aim for 100% operating rate after the shutdown," said the source.

The company is a joint venture between Japan’s Mitsubishi Rayon Co (MRC) and South Korea’s Honam Petrochemical Corp (HPC).
