SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Daesan MMA (DMMA) has resumed operations at its 98,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant in Yeosu earlier this week, a source close to the company confirmed on Friday.

The plant was taken offline two weeks ago for a scheduled turnaround.

After this week's restart, the facility is running at approximately 85%, a separate source said.

The company is a joint venture between Japan’s Mitsubishi Rayon Co (MRC) and South Korea’s Honam Petrochemical.
