SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC) is expected to restart its 250,000 tonne/year n-butanol (NBA) plant located at Mailiao over the weekend, a source familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The plant was shut in November for annual maintenance and the company initially planned to restart the plant in end-December.

“If operations run smoothly, the company will likely be able to offer cargoes into the spot market for February shipments,” the source added.
