SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Tongsuh Petrochemical plans to begin a turnaround at its 245,000 tonne/year No 4 acrylonitrile (ACN) line in Ulsan between early and mid-September, earlier than the initial schedule of October, a company source said on Wednesday.

The turnaround at the No 4 ACN is expected to complete at the end of October, the source said.

The company’s 70,000 tonne/year No 2 ACN line in Ulsan will shut in October as planned for about 10 days, he said.
