LONDON (ICIS)--Momentive Specialty Chemicals restarted its acrylic acid (AA) plant in Sokolov, Czech Republic at the weekend, following planned maintenance, a source from the chemicals producer said on Wednesday.
The producer had shut one of its two AA plants at the end of April for planned maintenance.
