LONDON (ICIS)--German chemical producer Evonik has shut down its 220,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) plant in Marl for maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The planned turnaround is expected to last for around three weeks.

This shutdown is the last in the spring maintenance season.

Previous maintenance shutdowns have included BD units in Moerdijk, the Netherlands (Shell), Wesseling in Germany (LyondellBasell) and Ravenna in Italy (Versalis).

The restart of Netherlands-based LyondellBasell’s unit is imminent, while Italy-headquartered producer Versalis’ unit is due back online next week.
