SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jiangmen Handsome Chemical Development is on schedule to start up its new 80,000 tonne/year butyl acrylate (butyl-A) plant located at Yixing, Jiangsu province, a company source said on Thursday.
The company plans to start commercial operations in end-March/early April, the source said.
“There is no change to the start-up date despite tightness in the feedstock n-butanol (NBA) market, as we have ample inventories,” the source added.
The plant at Taixing in Jiangsu province, east China, can produce 120,000 tonnes/year of etac and 60,000 tonnes/year of butac.
In southern Guangdong province, the company runs a 320,000 tonne/year etac/butac swing plant at Jiangmen and a 60,000 tonne/year butac plant at Huizhou.
