TOKYO (ICIS)--Japanese chemical producer Nippon Shokubai plans to restart five facilities at Himeji - including one of the acrylic acid (AA) plants - that were shut following the blast at the site in September 2012, the company said on Tuesday.
The company received government approval to restart the plants - including those for acrylates, methacrylic acid, special methacrylates, and outdoor tanks - it said in a statement.
These plants were not damaged by the blast or the fire that followed, Nippon Shokubai added.
The producer did not specify any dates for restart of the plants.
