MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Rizhao Jiahong Biological Technology is running its 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Rizhao in Shandong province at 100% capacity after completing its minor maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The producer restored its etac output to full capacity on 15 October. It was running at a reduced rate of 60-70% capacity between 2 October and 14 October to allow pipeline connections to be carried out.

The maintenance was scheduled to coincide with the country’s National Day holiday on 1-7 October.

Other etac producers in China include Jiangmen Handsome Chemical Development, Shanghai Wujing Chemical and Shandong Jinyimeng Group.
