LONDON (ICIS)--Austria's Atmosa has ceased production at one of its two phthalic anhydride (PA) production trains at Schwechat, a company source said on Friday.

The partial outage began earlier this week, the source said, but no restart date was disclosed.

The source explained that the train, which represents half of the producer's 50,000 tonne/year nameplate capacity at Schwechat, was stopped to allow for a catalyst change.
