SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Denka Singapore shut its 200,000 tonne/year polystyrene (PS) plant on 10 April for a scheduled turnaround, a company source said.
The plant, located on Jurong Island, is expected to be shut for around six weeks.
The company will continue to supply contract customers from stockpile while spot availability will be reduced.
“The shutdown has little impact on the spot market as it has been announced since last year but market players are more concerned with any delay in the restart,” said a trader in Hong Kong.
The other PS producer in Singapore is Total Petrochemicals.
