SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Japanese producer Kyowa Hakko plans to restart its oxo-alcohols plant in Yokkaichi on 25 April after a scheduled turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.

“We have no spot cargoes in April due to the turnaround, but we should have some spot 2-ethyl hexanol (2-EH) cargoes in May,” the source added.

The plant, which produces 130,000 tonnes/year of 2-EH and 120,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA), was shut on 13 March for a 45-day turnaround.
