SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s PTT Asahi Chemical is in the process of restarting its 200,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) plant in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, a company source said on Friday.

“We are doing the restart work at the plant this week and expected the plant is fully restarted by the end of the month,” the source said.

The plant was shut down in early May and was expected to be restarted in mid-June.

However, the restart of the plant was delayed to this month, the source said, but declined to disclose further details.

PTT Asahi Chemical is a joint venture of Thailand’s PTT and two Japanese firms – Asahi Kasei Chemicals and Marubeni.
