HOUSTON (ICIS)--US glycol ethers (butyl glycol and butyl di-glycol) exports in November increased by 10% from the same month a year earlier, according to data made available by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) on Monday.

US exports of butyl glycol (EB) and butyl di-glycol (DB) rose to 14,956 tonnes in November from 13,595 tonnes in November 2011.

Exports increased in November mainly because of increased amounts of EB and DB sent to Korea.

November exports decreased from 20,979 tonnes in October.

Korea at 5,280 tonnes was the major destination for glycol ethers exports, followed by China at 2,720 tonnes and Japan at 941 tonnes.

Other destinations included United Arab Emirates, Taiwan, Mexico, Belgium, Indonesia, Canada and Colombia.
