SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s TSRC-UBE (Nantong) Chemical Industrial is running its 72,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant at around 80% of capacity after it restarted the plant on 23 November, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plant was restarted earlier than scheduled because feedstock butadiene (BD) prices were low in late November, the source added.
The comapny, a major BR producer in Jiangsu province, is a joint venture between Taiwan Synthetic Rubber Corp (TSRC), which owns a 55% stake, and Japanese firms Ube Industries (25%) and Marubeni (20%).
