Japanís Tosoh Corp shuts Nanyo No 1 VCM line for turnaround

October 07/2010

SINGAPORE (ICIS) -- Japanís Tosoh Corp shut down its 250,000 tonne/year No 1 vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) line in Nanyo, Yamaguchi prefecture, for a maintenance turnaround on 2 October, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

 

The shutdown was expected to last until the end of November, the source said.

 

The company recently restarted its 400,000 tonne/year No 3 VCM line at the same site on 1 October, after a brief shutdown that began in mid-September.

 

Tosoh has a total VCM capacity of 1.2m tonnes/year at the Nanyo site and is the largest producer of the product in Asia.

 

VCM is used extensively as a raw material for the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
