SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China's Shandong Lihuayi plans to restart its 250,000 tonne/year oxo-alcohols plant on 30 July after a scheduled turnaround, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
The unit was shut on 18 July. During the shutdown, the producer's supply of n-butanol (NBA) decreased by about 3,000 tonnes, while its output of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) fell by 5,000 tonnes and isobutanol (IBA) by about 900 tonnes, according to the source.
The unit can produce 85,000 tonnes/year of NBA, 140,000 tonnes/year of 2-EH and 25,000 tonnes/year of IBA.
The company is based at Lijin in Shandong province, east China, and began operations in August last year.
