SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Nippon Shokubai plans to restart its 160,000 tonne/year acrylic acid (AA) unit in Himeji, Japan at the end of the month after a scheduled shutdown, a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

The Japanese company shut the unit in the beginning of November for a month-long maintenance and inspection, the source said.

Meanwhile, Nippon Shokubai plans to shut its new 80,000 tonne/year AA unit and its 90,000 tonne/year super absorbent polymer (SAP) unit in Cilegon, Indonesia from end-November to mid-December for scheduled maintenance, the source said.
