MELBOURNE (ICIS)--Japanese producer KH Neochem is capping the operating rate at its 30,000 tonne/year glycol ethers plant at Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture at around 80% of capacity because of unfavourable market conditions, a company official said on Thursday.
The producer reduced its glycol ethers output in early July. The plant was running at 90-100% previously, the official said.
“We will keep our plant running at the reduced rate until market conditions improve,” said the official.
The plant was shut between mid-March and late April for annual maintenance.
