LONDON (ICIS)--Polish chemicals producer ZAK has begun a planned turnaround at its oxo-alcohols and dioctyl phthalate (DOP) plasticizer units, a company spokesperson said on Wednesday.
The Kedzierzyn-Kozle site has a nameplate capacity of 60,000 tonnes/year for DOP and a combined capacity of 205,000 tonnes/year for the oxo-alcohols n-butanol (NBA), isobutanol (IBA) and 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH).
The outage began on 23 June. A company source said previously that it is scheduled to last until 10 July.
The oxo-alcohols and DOP outages were not originally planned to coincide, but the company decided to hold the turnaround at its DOP unit at the same time, owing to bearish sentiment in the plasticizers market.
