SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Qianjiang Yongan Pharmaceutical achieved on-spec EO product at its 40,000 tonne/year ethylene oxide (EO) unit at Qianjiang in Hubei province on 2 June after it was started up, the company said on Tuesday.

The yuan (CNY) 482m ($79m) EO unit can use both alcohol and ethylene as feedstock, according to a statement the company filed to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE).

The company will keep its EO output for captive use in its taurine production, it said.

It will take some time before commercial operations at the EO unit can begin, the company added.
