SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC) is planning to restart its 250,000 tonne/year n-butanol (NBA) plant located at Mailiao in end-December, a company source said on Friday.

The plant was shut in November for annual maintenance.

“Maintenance works are still being carried out at the site, and we are trying to restart the plant as soon as possible,” the source said.

The company currently has limited availability for the export spot market, as it allocates mainly for domestic usage, the source added.
