MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Jiangsu Lianhai Biological Technology plans to shut its 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Nantong in Jiangsu province over the Lunar New Year holiday, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
The planned shutdown on 7 -15 February is aimed at curtailing the producer’s excess etac output and no maintenance will be carried out, the source added.
The Lunar New Year holiday in China falls on 9-15 February in 2013.
Jiangsu Lianhai's plan to boost the plant’s etac capacity by 150% to 250,000 tonnes/year is under way and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2013, the source added.
