SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s LG Chem is running its new bisphenol A (BPA) plant in Daesan at 50% of capacity because of weak demand, a company source said on Friday.

Prior to the output cut on 1 July, the plant with a nameplate BPA capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year was running at full capacity, the source said.

The plant's run rate will be kept at 50% for July, the source added.

In Yeosu, LG Chem has two BPA units with a combined capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year that are currently running at 100%, the source said.
