The line was initially scheduled to be restarted in late April following a three-week turnaround, according to the source.
“Demand for BR is very weak and we will extend the shutdown of the 80,000 tonne/year BR line by at least another week and restart [it] sometime in early May,” the source said.
LG Chem runs three BR lines at Daesan with a combined capacity of 180,000 tonnes/year.
Its other two BR lines, each with 50,000 tonnes/year of capacity, are operating at 100% of capacity.
BR spot prices were at $3,650-3,750/tonne (€2,774-2,850/tonne) CFR (cost & freight) northeast (NE)
($1 = €0.76)
