The plant’s operating rate was cut to 80-90% capacity because of unfavourable margins, the source said.
The plant, which can produce 300,000 tonnes/year of phenol and 180,000 tonnes/year of acetone, was running at full capacity prior to the production cuts, the source added.
Its run rate will be kept at 80-90% until end of April if prevailing weak market condition continues, according to the source.
