MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Yankuang Chemical has shut its 200,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Tengzhou in Shandong province for modification, a company source said on Friday.
The plant, which was taken off line on 2 July, is scheduled to be restarted early in the week starting 15 July, the source said.
Other market sources in China said that the etac plant was shut to facilitate the start-up of Shandong Yankuang’s new oxo-alcohols facility.
Shandong Yankuang is scheduled to bring onstream a new 120,000 tone/year oxo-alcohols plant in mid-July 2013.
