South Korea-based Tongsuh Petrochemical is planning to shut its No. 2 and No. 4 Acrylonitrile (ACN) plants for maintenance.
 
The two plants located in Ulsan are likely to be shut in October 2013, a company official told fibre2fashion.
 
The maintenance work would take around one month to get completed, after which the plants would be restarted.
 
The No. 2 ACN plant has a production capacity of 70,000 mt/year, while the No. 4 ACN plant has a production capacity of 245,000 mt/year.
 
The official said the company does not have any plans to carryout maintenance at the No. 3 plant, which has an annual capacity to produce 245,000 mt of ACN. The No. 3 plant’s maintenance is scheduled for next year.
 
Established in 1969, Tongsuh Petrochemical Corp., Ltd. became South Korea' s first company to produce ACN. The company has contributed greatly to the development of Korea' s petrochemical industry.
 
Tongsuh Petrochemical is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s Asahi Kasei Corporation.
 
Acrylonitrile is the key ingredient in acrylic fibers used to make clothing.
