SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Deepak Fertilizers and Petrochemicals Corp Ltd (DFPCL) has resumed operations at its 70,000 tonne/year isopropanol (IPA) facility at Taloja after a brief shutdown and is running it at full capacity, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
Operations were resumed on 8 September after the plant was taken off line on 25 August because of a technical problem at one of the reactors at the facility, the source added.
Despite the restart, IPA prices in the domestic market continue to be firm at Indian rupees (Rs) 85-87/kg ($1.54-1.57/kg) ex-tank, because of the tight supply in other Asian markets, market sources said.
($1 = Rs55.33)
