Market conditions dictate start-up of new Tongsuh ACN line
Feb '13
Korea based Tongsuh Petrochemical is likely to start a new Acrylonitrile (ACN) line very soon at Ulsan.
“The start-up of the new line is completely based on the ACN market. Due to poor market conditions, the company has not yet decided the exact date to start the new ACN line”, a Tongsuh official told fibre2fashion. 
He further said, “If the market condition of ACN improves then the start up of the plant which has a production capacity of 245,000 mt/year, will take place by the end of February 2013”.
On asking about the maintenance turnaround in 2013, he said, “The annual maintenance turnaround of ACN line no-2 and no-4 will take place in October 2013 and they will remain shut for a period of one month.” 
The total production capacity of the Ulsan ACN plant is 560,000 mt/year. Line No 2 has a production capacity of 70,000 mt/year and line No 3 and No 4 have a capacity of 245,000 mt/year, each.
