LONDON (ICIS)--Russian ethanolamine producer Sintez will shut down its two ethanolamine units in Dzerzhinsk, Russia, on 7 June for planned maintenance, a company source confirmed on Wednesday.

“We are going to stop all plants on 7 June for three weeks,” the source said.

The company has been running at 100% operating rates in April and May in order to prepare for the planned outage.

Sintez has two units at its Dzerzhinsk site. The largest has the capacity to produce 25,000 tonnes/year of ethanolamines and the smaller, older facility can produce 15,000 tonnes/year.
