SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Advanced Biochemical (Thailand) is planning to shut its 100,000 tonne/year epichlorohydrin (ECH) plant in Map Ta Phut on 8-22 March for regular maintenance, a company source said late on Tuesday.

The plant turnaround will not affect supply to its customers as the company will build up ample inventories beforehand, the source said.

Advanced Biochemical (Thailand), a subsidiary of Belgian producer Solvay, is the largest ECH producer in southeast Asia.
