MOSCOW (MRC) -- Mitsui Phenols Singapore, an affiliate of the leading Japanese producer of performance materials, petro and basic chemicals and functional polymeric materials Mitsui Chemicals, is in plans to shut its phenol-acetone plant for maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

Operations were scheduled to begin during the first quarter of 2014.
