The ethanolamines plant was previously running at around 50-60% of capacity after it was brought on stream in late September because of insufficient supply of feedstock ethylene oxide (EO).
The ethanolamines plant secures its feedstock on site – from a 100,000 tonne/year EO plant, which is jointly owned by Honam Petrochemical and China Sanjiang Fine Chemical.
The EO plant, which was also started up on 29-30 September, is currently running at more than 90% of capacity, the source said.
