ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposed joint venture of PTT of Thailand and Japan's Asahi Kasei Chemicals which will be called PTT Asahi Chemical. The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the joint venture which covers co-investment in a 200,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) unit, a 70,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant and a feasibility study on a 25,000 tonne/ year PMMA unit. The MMA project will also use Asahi Kasei's technology, with acetone cyanohydrin from the ACN plant as feedstock.
