The producer on 7 January reduced its Daesan plant operating rate to 50% capacity from 70% capacity previously, the source said.

LG Chem in early December reduced the operating rate at the plant, which has a phenol capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year and an acetone capacity of 180,000 tonnes/year, to 70% capacity.
LG Chem’s phenol/acetone plant at Yeosu, which can produce 300,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 180,000 tonnes/year of acetone, is running at full capacity, the source added.
