South Korean based Tongsuh Petrochemical will begin commercial production of a new line at its Acrylonitrile (ACN) plant in early 2013.

Tongsuh is adding line no - 4 at its Ulsan based ACN plant, which will have a production capacity of 245,000 tons per year, a Tongsuh official told fibre2fashion.

He added that line no-4 is expected to commence commercial production in January 2013.

When quizzed about current capacity rates, he informed “We are currently operating at 80 percent operating rates as ACN market trends are not so good”.

He further revealed that they have planned a maintenance turnaround at the other two lines in the month of October, which will stay shut for a period of one month.

Tongsuh has an ACN capacity of 315,000 tons per annum and with the addition of the new ACN line in 2013 will reach 560,000 tons per year.
