HOUSTON (ICIS)--US n-butanol exports in November decreased by 20% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Monday.

US butanol exports fell to 15,814 tonnes in November from 19,788 tonnes in November 2011.

Exports fell in November mainly because of decreased product sent to China.

November exports increased from 12,237 tonnes in October.

China, at 5,015 tonnes, was the major destination for butanol exports, followed by Singapore, at 2,951 tonnes, Mexico, at 2,606 tonnes, and Korea, at 2,000 tonnes.

Other destinations included Belgium, Colombia, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, Canada and Venezuela.
