SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia's Justus Sakti Raya Corp is running its 14,000 tonne/year maleic anhydride (MA) plant in Jakarta at full capacity since the middle of the week, up from 90% in the previous week, a company source said on Friday.

The company has gradually ramped up the unit’s run rate from 80% two weeks ago after resuming production on 29 March, the source said.

The MA plant was taken off line on 4 March for a turnaround, the source said.

Justus Sakti Raya Corp is one of the only two MA producers in Asia outside China that use benzene as a feedstock. The other is Japan’s Nippon Shokubai.
