SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s LG Chem is currently operating all four of its crude acrylic acid (AA) lines with a combined capacity of 353,000 tonnes/year in Yeosu at 100% capacity, a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

LG Chem’s fourth crude AA line, which has a capacity of 160,000 tonne/year, was started up as expected in early June, which is mainly used for the super absorbent polymer (SAP) sector, the source said.

“Currently, availability of cargoes for October is limited, as sales for the month have already been done,” the source added.
