LONDON (ICIS)--Sweden's SEKAB Biofuels and Chemicals has restarted its ethyl acetate plant at Domsjo after a one-week outage, a company source said on Friday.

The 35,000 tonne/year unit resumed output as planned on 27 September and the source said it would be “running at full speed by the weekend”.

INEOS also confirmed a five-week outage at its 245,000 tonne/year unit in Hull, UK, was still on schedule.

“So far we are to plan for an 8-10 October start-up,” a company source said.

During the outages, spot ethyl acetate prices have firmed over €100/tonne ($137/tonne) amid tight supply. Most buyers and sellers assessed the spot range at €940-980/tonne free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE), according to ICIS.

($1 = €0.73)
