SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Shaanxi Shanhua Chemical Fertilizer has taken off line its 30,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) plant at Weinan, Shaanxi province, for 20 days of annual maintenance, a company source said on Monday.

The plant, which uses calcium carbide and methanol as feedstock, was shut on 10 April - as scheduled, the source said.

The shutdown will have a limited impact on the market as there is sufficient BDO capacity in the country to meet current demand, industry sources said.
