SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s KPX Green Chemical plans to raise the run rates at its 25,000 tonne/year ethanolamines unit in Daesan to 90% capacity, following a recent turnaround, a company source said on Tuesday.
The ethanolamines plant was taken off line for regular maintenance on 12 August and was restarted on 16 August, the source added.
Currently, the plant is being operated at 85% capacity, the source said.
Owing to strong domestic demand, the producer is keeping its ethanolamines supplies for the local market, the source added.
“There are no offers [made to overseas markets] for September shipments,” the source said.
