SINGAPORE (ICIS)--France’s Rhodia Polyamide is running its 140,000 tonne/year adipic acid (ADA) plant in Onsan, South Korea, at full capacity after it was restarted in early July, a company source said on Wednesday.
“The plant was restarted in early July and it is running at 100%,” the source said.
The company shut the plant on 10 June for scheduled maintenance.
ADA is primarily used in the production of nylon 6,6 (polyamide 6,6), as well as in the manufacture of polyurethane, which is used in the soles of shoes and in polyester resins.
