LONDON (ICIS)--Shell will shut its 45,000 tonne/year methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) plant in Pernis, the Netherlands, for one month for planned maintenance beginning 20 August, a source with the Anglo-Dutch energy company confirmed on Friday.
The outage is not expected to have an impact on the MIBK supply and demand balance in Europe because it will coincide with end-user outages.
