SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korean aromatics producer Yeochun NCC (YNCC) is operating its No 1 benzene, toluene, xylene (BTX) unit at around 85% after restarting it on 25 February due to an outage at the cracker, said a company source on Monday.
No further confirmation was available.
YNCC produces 140,000 tonnes/year of benzene, 80,000 tonnes/year of toluene and 50,000 tonnes/year of solvent grade xylene.
The company also operates two other BTX units at Yeosu. The three units operated by YNCC are running at a total of over 90%, the source added.
