LONDON (ICIS)--SABIC’s butadiene (BD) extraction unit in Wilton, the UK, remains offline because of a fouling issue, a company source said on Thursday.
The unit, which has the capacity to produce 100,000 tonnes/year of BD, was shut down on 1 March.
The source said the company was trying to fix the issue and that “hopefully the unit would be back onstream soon.”
SABIC recently postponed its planned March-April turnaround at its Geleen site in the Netherlands until 2014.
