LONDON (ICIS)--Russia-based ethanolamines producer Sintez is in the process of restarting the larger of its two ethanolamines units at Dzerzhinsk, a company source said on Wednesday.

“Everything has been solved and all units are under the restarting process”, the source said.

Sintez had originally expected the unit to come back on stream on 16 July following planned maintenance but the restart was delayed because of technical issues.

The total ethanolamines capacity at the site is 40,000 tonnes/year.

The larger unit, built in 2001, has the capacity to produce 25,000 tonnes/year of ethanolamines. Its second facility, which dates back to 1948, has a production capacity of 15,000 tonnes/year.
