SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia's Sorini Agro Asia is operating its 140,000 tonne/year sorbitol plant in East Java, near Surabaya port, at near full capacity following a recent planned turnaround, a source familiar with the situation said on Wednesday.

The plant was taken off line in late July for three days, the source said.

Sorbitol is an artificial sweetener with applications in food products and pharmaceuticals.
