LONDON (ICIS)--Sasol-Huntsman will bring online a second maleic anhydride (MA) flake pastilisation unit at its plant in Moers, Germany, by the first quarter of 2013, a company source said on Thursday.

The new line will bring flake production nameplate capacity at Moers up to 20,000 tonnes/year, double the current capacity of 10,000 tonnes/year, the company source confirmed.

The overall production capacity at Moers, however, will remain unchanged once the new unit comes online at 105,000 tonnes/year of MA.
