SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Monomer Co (KMC) plans to restart its 90,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant over the weekend, a company source said on Friday.

The MMA plant, which is located at Da-Sheh industry zone in Kaohsiung, was shut for maintenance at the end of October, the source said.

The plant is likely to run at a reduced rate after the restart, to allow the producer to coordinate feedstock supply.

KMC is a joint venture between Lucite International and China Petrochemical Development Corp (CPDC).
