SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Denka Singapore restarted its 200,000 tonne/year polystyrene (PS) facility on Jurong Island late last week after about a week of shutdown, a company source said on Monday.

The facility encountered some mechanical issues on 6 September and was shut for around a week.

The company was able to meet contractual obligations from inventories but will have limited spot parcels available for the rest of the month, the source added.

The other PS manufacturer in Singapore is Total Petrochemicals.
