LONDON (ICIS)--German producer Evonik’s butadiene (BD) unit in Marl is running to plan, having restarted successfully following planned maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.
The unit, which has the capacity to produce 220,000 tonnes/year of BD, was taken off-line in mid-June and restarted around 12 July.
The unit’s restart brings the European spring maintenance season to a close. Previous maintenance shutdowns have included the BD units at Moerdijk in the Netherlands (Shell), Wesseling in Germany (LyondellBasell) and Ravenna in Italy (Versalis).
