SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Hebi Coal Group is running its 50,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) unit at Hebi city of central Henan province at around 50% of capacity, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company restarted its BDO plant around 22 June after one-week maintenance and increased the operating rates to 50% from early last week, according to the source.

The company has started to offer some small volumes to a few key customers - including downstreams and traders - at about yuan (CNY) 15,000/tonne ($2,355/tonne) DEL (delivered), the source added.

The company achieved on-spec product at the plant in late May this year, according to an earlier story from ICIS.

Hebi Coal Group is a subsidiary of Henan Coal Chemical Group.
