SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Lushenfa Chemical is planning to start up its 80,000 tonne/year isobutene plant at Dongying in Shandong province in late 2013, a company source said on Friday.

The plant will use isobutane dehydrogenation technology to produce isobutene, according to the source.

The company will reserve a small part of the isobutene output for captive use and supply the majority to spot markets, added the source.

Lushenfa Chemical is building a 145,000 tonne/year isobutene using the same process plant nearby and the bigger plant is expected to come on stream in late 2014 or early 2015, the source said without elaborating further.
