Correction: In the ICIS news story headlined "South Korea’s KPX may restart TDI line in late May/early June" dated 26 May 2014, please read in the first paragraph ... in Yeosu... instead of ... in Ulsan .... A corrected story follows.

SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s KPX Fine Chemical may resume production at one of its three 50,000 tonne/year toluene di-isocynate (TDI) lines in Yeosu this week or next week, market sources said on Monday.

The line was shut on 15 April because of raw material issues.

The company's two other TDI lines have not been operating since early last year because of high raw material costs.
