The Yeosu unit, which has a nameplate capacity of 110,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) and 10,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA) is expected to be restarted once the problem is solved, the source said, without providing further details.
The company recently shut the unit in early-October because of technical issues, and was restarted on 18 October.
