MELBOURNE (ICIS)--China’s Rizhao Jiahong Biological Technology is capping the operating rate at its 100,000 tonne/year ethyl acetate (etac) plant at Rizhao in Shandong province at 60% capacity after restarting the unit, a company source said on Monday.

The ongoing slow domestic and export demand for etac had prompted the producer to run its plant at the reduced operating rate, the source added.

The plant, which was shut on 25 July, was restarted on 25 August following the completion of maintenance work, the source added.
