SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Kingboard Chemical shut its phenol/acetone plant at Huizhou city in southern Guangdong province on 30 August because of unspecified mechanical problems, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plant, which has a capacity of 120,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 80,000 tonnes/year of acetone, will remain off line for around one week, the source added.
Its downstream 25,000 tonne/year bisphenol A (BPA) unit, which is located at the same site, is running at full tilt, the source said.
