Correction: In the ICIS news story headlined “Japan's Showa Denko restarts Oita ethyl acetate plant on 11 June” dated 30 May 2012, please read in second paragraph...shortage of ethlyene supply....instead of …caused by extended shutdown of Showa Denko cracker…A corrected story follows.
The plant was shut on 18 May because of a shortage of feedstock ethylene supply, the source added.
The same problem prompted the shutdown of the etac plant from mid-March to early April this year.
The etac plant, which is operated under Japan Ethyl Acetate, is 55%-owned by Showa Denko and 45%-owned by KH Neochem (formerly Kyowa Hakko Chemical).
