SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Shanghai Wujing Chemical’s 200,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant in China’s Anhui province has been shut since 22 September because of mechanical issues, a company official said on Friday.

No restart date has been fixed, the source said without elaborating on details of the shutdown.

The shutdown has had no material impact on the China’s domestic etac market as demand has been weak ahead of country’s week-long National Day holiday on 1-7 October.

Other etac makers in China include Jiangsu Sopo, Jiangmen Handsome Chemical Development, Shandong Jinyimeng Group and Rizhao Jiahong Biological Technology.
