MELBOURNE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>China’s Rizhao Jiahong Biological Technology is running its 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Rizhao in Shandong province at a reduced rate because of minor plant maintenance, a company source said on Tuesday.
The operating rate at the plant was reduced to 60-70% of capacity on 2 October, from full capacity, to allow pipeline connections to be carried out, the source said.
The maintenance was scheduled to coincide with the country’s National Day holiday on 1-7 October, and should be completed by 13-14 October, the source added.
Other etac producers in China include Jiangmen Handsome Chemical Development, Shanghai Wujing Chemical and Shandong Jinyimeng Group.By: Trisha Huang
