SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Shandong Shengli Oilfield Petrochemical restarted its 13,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) plant at Dongying in Shandong province in eastern China on 12 June after a week-long outage, a company source said on Tuesday.
“The plant just restarted today and the on-spec product will be achieved tomorrow,” said the source.
The company unexpectedly shut down the BDO plant last week because of mechanical problems, the source added.
BDO is used industrially as a solvent and in the manufacture of plastics, elastic fibres and polyurethanes (PU).
