Tongsuh Petrochemical, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s Asahi Kasei Corporation, is likely to restart its No.4 acrylonitrile (ACN) line on October 25, 2013, following maintenance turnaround, a company official told fibre2fashion.
 
The No.4 ACN line—one of the three ACN lines of Tongsuh at Ulsan in South Korea—was shut in the first week of September 2013 for maintenance.
 
When asked about other maintenance shutdowns, the official said there would be no more maintenance shutdowns this year.
 
“The ACN lines no. 2 and 3 would be shut for maintenance in early May next year for one month duration,” the official informed.
 
The three ACN lines at Ulsan have a combined capacity to produce 560 kt/year, of which the No. 2 line has production capacity of 70 kt/year, while lines no. 3 and 4 have capacity of 245 kt/year each.
 
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.
 
Acrylonitrile is the key ingredient in acrylic fibers used to make clothing.
