SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s LG Chem plans to shut its 160,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) unit at Daesan in March next year for maintenance, a company source said.

The planned turnaround is expected to last about two weeks and could extend into April next year, the source said.

The company operates another 200,000 tonne/year and 300,000 tonne/year SM facilities in Yeosu. These units are not slated for maintenance in 2014.
