SINGAPORE (ICIS)-- India’s Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corp is currently running its 70,000 tonne/year isopropanol (IPA) plant in Mumbai at full capacity, after shutting down for nearly a week because of technical problem, said a company source on Tuesday.

The plant was taken off line on 12 December and restarted on 19 December, the source said.

The shutdown of the plant led to a slight firming of IPA prices in India, market sources said.

India’s domestic IPA prices increased by Indian rupees (Rs) 4/kg (Rs4,000/tonne, $76/tonne) this week to Rs72-73/kg ex-tank, traders said.

($1 = Rs52.89)
