MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Dragon Sky Chemical is running its 50,000 tonne/year butyl acetate (butac) plant in Shanghai at 60% of capacity after restarting the unit early this week, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The producer resumed production at the plant on 18 February, after taking it off line on 5 February to prevent an inventory build-up over the Lunar New Year holiday.
Dragon Sky is capping its butac output because of slow demand for the solvent, the source said.
The Lunar New Year holiday in China fell on 9-15 February in 2013.
