MELBOURNE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>Japan’s Showa Denko is running its joint-venture 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant in Oita at full capacity after restarting it on 12 June, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
The plant was shut on 18 May because of a shortage of feedstock ethylene supply.
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).
Showa Denko also operates a 50,000 tonne/year etac plant at Merak in Indonesia.By: Trisha Huang
