Market sources reported that China’s Jilin Petrochemicals and South Korea’s Tongsuh Petrochemical shut their ACN lines. Jilin Petrochemicals was reported to have suspended production at its No.1 and No.2 ACN lines in China on October 10 for seven days. However, some market players have claimed that the company will shut their lines on October 15 for five days. The units have a combined production capacity of 212,000 tons/year.

In addition, South Korea’s Tongsuh Petrochemical shut its No.3 ACN line at Ulsan today for maintenance. The 245,000 tons/year line is expected to remain offline until mid-November.

Meanwhile, China’s Shandong Ke Luer restarted its ACN plant on October 8. The 130,000 tons/year plant was shut due to poor demand in late August, according to market sources.
