SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Hanwha Chemical has restarted its oxo-alcohols plant on 17 October after a brief shutdown, a company source said on Thursday.
The Yeosu unit, which has a nameplate capacity of 110,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) and 10,000 tonne/year of n-butanol (NBA), was shut because of technical issues.
The company plans to ramp production to 100% of capacity soon, the source said.
The shutdown has caused the company about 5 days worth of production losses, according to market sources.
