MELBOURNE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Kumho P&B Chemicals may start up its expanded methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) plant in Yeosu by 10 December, earlier than the company previously expected, a company source said on Monday.
The plant has been off line since 1 September to undergo overhaul and capacity expansion.
The capacity of the MIBK plant will be increased by 83% to 55,000 tonnes/year from 30,000 tonnes/year.
The company had previously said it expects the shutdown to last about three and a half months.
