LONDON (ICIS)--Poland’s Zaklady Azotowe Kedzierzyn (ZAK) restarted its oxo-alcohols complex on 25 July after a month-long maintenance shutdown, a company source said on Monday.

The plant, at Kedzierzyn-Kozle in southern Poland, shut down on 26 June for three weeks of maintenance, but technical problems delayed the restart by one week.

The facility has a nameplate capacity of 132,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH), 60,000 tonnes/year of dioctyl phthalate (DOP), 36,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA) and 24,000 tonnes/year of isobutanol (IBA), according to a company source.

ZAK is a major manufacturer of oxo-alcohols, which it sells to many domestic and foreign customers as semi-finished products for the production of plasticisers, solvents, paints and varnishes. The company also makes products for the agriculture and construction industries.

($1 = €0.69)
