The producer also has a 100,000 tonne/year 2-butyl acetate plant at Yueyang, which was restarted on 12 November and is currently running at 40% of capacity, the source added. The plant was shut on 24 October for maintenance.
Most players think that the turnaround will have little impact on the market as the market supply is ample and the demand is poor.
The spot prices of 2-butyl acetate were assessed at yuan (CNY) 6,600-6,800/tonne ($1,059-1,091/tonne)
2-butyl acetate is used in paints, medications and printing ink.
