SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Nippon Shokubai Indonesia has shut its 60,000 tonne/year crude acrylic acid (AA) plant located at Cilegon, West Java for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company shut the 60,000 tonne/year crude AA plant earlier this week for one month of scheduled maintenance, the source said.

According to the source, the company has also shut its 100,000 tonne/year acrylate esters unit for maintenance, alongside with the crude AA plant.

“Inventory for the spot market will be limited, but we will still be able to fulfil contractual basis needs,” the source added.
