LONDON (ICIS)--French specialty chemicals producer Arkema will enter into a planned turnaround for routine maintenance on its acrylic acid (AA) and acrylate esters facilities in September, a source from the company said on Tuesday.

Arkema has a crude AA equivalent capacity of 276,000 tonnes/year at its Carling, France site.

“We will be having our usual annual shutdown during September,” the source said.

“We will be managing business in the usual manner [during the outage],” it added.

AA and acrylate esters are principally propylene derivatives.
