SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Qilu plans to restart its 355,000 tonne/year oxo-alcohols facility at Zibo in Shandong province in early May, a company source said on Wednesday.
The facility was shut on 7 April. The facility includes a 250,000 tonne/year 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) unit, a 85,000 tonne/year n-butanol (NBA) unit, and a 20,000 tonne/year isobutanol (IBA) unit, the source added.
The restart may put downtrend pressure on domestic prices due to increased domestic supply, a trader said.
