MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Rizhao Jiahong Biological Technology plans to restart its 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Rizhao in Shandong province after completing maintenance work later this month, a company source said on Friday.

The plant was taken off line on 25 July and maintenance is expected to end by 25 August, the source added.

The producer will meet its sales commitments from existing inventories during the shutdown, the source said.

Other major etac producers in China include Jiangsu Sopo, Wuxi Baichuan, Shandong Jinyimeng and Jiangmen Handsome.
