LONDON (ICIS)--Germany-based LANXESS’ phthalic anhydride (PA) plant in Krefeld, Germany, is now running normally again, following a recent maintenance turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.
Operating rates at the German PA facility have recently been ramped up, following a catalyst change, which was carried out at the plant in October.
The source said the company expects to run its PA plant at full production during December, stating that its demand is reasonable and only slightly below that seen in October and November.
The plant has the nameplate capacity to produce 85,000 tonnes/year of PA, according to ICIS plants and projects database.
