The producer also pegged its July ACP for acetone at $1,395/tonne CFR China, inclusive of 7.2% ADD. The June nomination was at $1,455/tonne CFR China, including ADD of 11.9%.
Mitsui has been enjoying lower ADD on acetone since
“We didn’t sell any contract cargoes in June,” said a company official, due to “the big price gap between the nomination and buying ideas”.
In the spot market, July loading phenol cargoes were sold at $1,750/tonne CFR China, including ADD of 6%, the source said.
