SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand's Ubon Bio Ethanol has postponed the start-up at its 320,000 cbm/year ethanol plant at Ubon Ratchathani in northeast Thailand to November-December, a company source said on Wednesday.

“We will target for November for the start-up, but we may delay it to December at the latest,” the source said, without elaborating further.

The company originally scheduled to bring the plant on line in October,  but considered delaying it because of equipment changes to accommodate feedstock molasses instead of cassava chips.
