SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Yancheng Super Chemical is operating its 50,000 tonne/year isopropanol (IPA) unit at Yancheng in Jiangsu province at 80% of capacity after restarting the unit on 1 December, a company source said on Friday.
The unit was shut on 27 November for repairs, the source said.
Tight domestic supply and high feedstock acetone costs have continued to drive Chinese domestic prices higher.
Prices in east China were assessed at yuan (CNY) 10,300-10,400/tonne ($1,653-1,669/tonne) ex-tank on 7 December, up by CNY100/tonne from 30 November, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
($1 = CNY6.23)
