Asahimas to restart VCM lines in Indonesia after maintenance

July 03/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Indonesias PT Asahimas Chemical (ASC), part of Asahi Glass, is planning to restart its No. 2 vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) line in the first half of July after taking the unit off-stream on 19 May 2020 for unscheduled maintenance, reported CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

The No. 2 line has an annual capacity of 350,000 tons/year.

PT Asahimas Chemical expanded the No. 2 VCM line in early 2018 to boost the capacity from 100,000 tons/year to 350,000 tons/year.

PT Asahimas Chemical is owned 52.5% by Asahi Glass, 11.5% by Mitsubishi Corp, and the remaining belong to two other local companies.

As MRC reported earlier, PT Asahimas restarted its No. 2 VCM unit on December 2, 2019, following an unplanned outage. The unit remained off-line for about one week owing to technical issues.

VCM is a main feedstock for the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

According to MRC's DataScope report, exports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) from Russia reached about 92,200 tonnes in the first five months of 2020, up by 10% year on year. At the same time, PVC imports to the country grew by 1%.

Asahi Glass Co., Ltd., more commonly known as AGC, is a global glass manufacturing company, headquartered in Tokyo. It is one of the core Mitsubishi companies.

PT Asahimas Chemical is owned 52.5% by Asahi Glass, 11.5% by Mitsubishi Corp. and 18% each by the local Rodamas and Ableman Finance.
