SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Singapore Acrylic Acid is currently operating its 73,000 tonne/year crude acrylic acid (AA) facility at Jurong Island at 100% of capacity, a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.
The AA unit was recently shut in mid-January for 10 days of maintenance, and was restarted in early February, the source said.
Toagosei, a joint-owner of Singapore Acrylic Acid, is also running its acrylate esters facilities in Singapore at full capacity, the source added.
Other key producers of crude AA in the region include Malaysia’s BASF PETRONAS Chemicals, Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp and South Korea’s LG Chem.
