LONDON (ICIS)--Rhodia is due to restart its k-oil production on 20 May and its adipic acid production in Chalampe, France, on 1 June, a company source said on Friday.

Rhodia shut down the adipic acid plant on 6 May for planned maintenance. K-oil production stopped on 28 April.

The source said: “We are lucky to be shut down at the moment because water levels on the river Rhine are so low. Thanks to this, we have accumulated some raw materials so we should restart with no cyclohexane problems.”

Rhodia has the capacity to produce 300,000 tonnes/year of adipic acid at its Chalampe facility.
