SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korean oxo-alcohols producer Hanwha Chemical has ramped up operating rates at its facility to 100% since restarting on 7 July, a company source said on Monday.

The facility, which is located in Yeosu, was initially shut on 3 July because of a technical problem.

It is able to produce 110,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) and 10,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA).
