SINGAPORE (ICIS)--AkzoNobel is in the process of restarting its ethanolamines plant China’s Zhejiang province after a brief shutdown, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The 80,000 tonne/year unit at Ningbo was taken off line on 1 December for mechanical works, the source said.

Sales will resume next week after a short suspension when the plant was shut, the source said.

The Ningbo plant produces monoethanolamine (MEA) and diethanolamine (DEA). Most of its MEA is for captive use of ethylene amines, while the DEA output – mainly for surfactants applications – is for commercial sales.
