SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thai Fatty Alcohols (TFA) plans to shut its 100,000 tonne/year fatty alcohol plant in Thailand’s Rayong province in November for annual maintenance, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The plant will be shut down for 20 days, the source added.

TFA is owned by Thai Oleochemicals (TOL), a subsidiary of PTT Chemical.

Fatty alcohols originate from vegetable oil and are traditionally used in the personal care, cosmetics and detergent industries.

The chemical is used in industrial applications including alcohol ethoxylates (AEO), which have a variety of uses in the lubricant and cleaning industries.
