LONDON (ICIS)--Ukraine-based Azot Severodonetsk will keep its acetic acid plant closed throughout November for economic reasons, a source close to the company said on Friday.

The producer began a shutdown at its acetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) units in September, although precise dates were not disclosed.

The source did not provide an update on the current status of the VAM plant, or whether it will also remain down for the longer term.

The source had previously confirmed that the acetic acid plant at Severodonetsk has a nameplate capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year, while the VAM plant has a nameplate capacity of 35,000 tonnes/year.
