SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Samsung Total Petrochemical plans to restart its 650,000 tonne/year No 2 styrene monomer (SM) unit in Daesan on 20 April after a three-week maintenance, a source close of the company said on Thursday.

The unit was shut in early April, the source said.

The company operates a smaller 280,000 tonne/year No 1 SM unit at the same site that is currently running normally, the source said.

Other SM producers in South Korea include LG Chem, Honam Petrochemical and SK Energy and YNCC.
