LONDON (ICIS news)--EuroChem resumed production of butyl acetate at Nevinnomyssk in Russia on Tuesday, a company source said on Friday.

The 18,000 tonne/year butyl acetate unit restarted a couple of days after the 160,000 tonne/year acetic acid unit, as scheduled.

The whole petrochemical complex went into a month-long outage at the start of April. However, butyl acetate production had shut down at the end of March, slightly earlier than planned, due to technical issues.

“We are not yet at full rates, but will be imminently,” the source added.

The complex includes a 140,000 tonnes/year methanol unit, which is also up and running.
