SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Styrindo Mono Indonesia plans to restart its 250,000 tonne/year No 2 styrene monomer (SM) unit in the second week of March after a turnaround, a source close to the company said.
“We hope to get the No 2 plant running smoothly by the end of the second week of March,” the source said.
The company has a 100,000 tonne/year No 1 SM plant at the same location.
