Taiwan Styrene Monomer Corporation (TSMC) plans to shut one of its two styrene monomer (SM) units in Kaohsiung next week for approximately three weeks for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.
The 180,000 tonne/year SM unit is expected to restart on 10 September, the source said.
Its other SM plant (160,000 tonne/year) will continue to operate at 100% during the turnaround, the source added.
Both facilities are running at full capacity, the source said.
