Japanese petrochemical major - Asahi Kasei intends to undertake turnaround at its Kawasaki – Japan and South Korea based acrylonitrile (ACN) plants in the fourth quarter of 2012.

“The Kawasaki ACN plant with production capacity of 150,000 tons/year, will be taken off-stream in the month of October-November”, a company official informed fibre2fashion.

He added, “Another South Korea located ACN plant with a capacity of 315,000 tons/year, will also go in for maintenance in the same period for a period of around 30 days.”

Asahi Kasei manages plants in Japan, South Korea and Thailand. The Kawasaki plant has two ACN lines each with a capacity of 200,000 tons/annum and 150,000 tons/year.
