SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Meizhouwan Chlor-Alkali Industries plans to shut down its 30,000 tonne/year 1,4-butanediol (BDO) plant at Quanzhou in Fujian province for 15 days of annual maintenance at the end of June, a company source said on Tuesday.

The plant is operating at a rate of around 90%, the source said.

The shutdown will not affect the market which is currently oversupplied, market players said.

Other major BDO producers in China include Shanxi Sanwei, Shaanxi Shanhua and Nanjing Bluestar New Chemical Materials.
