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.

The ACN plant in South Korea has a production capacity of 315,000 tons/year and in Thailand it is 200,000 tons/year.

When quizzed about the current capacity rates at all the three ACN plants, he said, “The company has cut production capacity by 20 percent and all of them are operating at 80 percent capacity”.
