SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Oriental Union Chemical Corp (OUCC) expects to restart its 40,000 tonnes/year ethanolamines unit at Nanjing in China’s Jiangsu province in end-June, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The plant was taken off line on 13 May, the source said citing the reason for the shutdown.

OUCC also operates two 40,000 tonne/year ethanolamines units in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

One of the Kaohsiung units is currently running after being shut in April, while the other has been idled for a long time, the source said without elaborating.
