SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Sulfindo Adiusaha shut its 100,000 tonne/year vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant at Merak in West Java on 1 May for a month-long turnaround, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The shutdown is not expected to affect the VCM spot market as Sulfindo uses most of its VCM output to produce derivative polyvinyl chloride (PVC), market sources said.
