SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xinjiang Markor Chemical shut its 60,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) plant in Xinjiang province on 1 September for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Monday.
“The plant was taken off line yesterday [1 September] and it will be shut for 15 days,” the source said.
The shutdown will not affect its customers as the producer has already build stocks ahead of the turnaround, the source added.
The company’s second BDO plant at the same site, with a capacity of 100,000 tonnes/year, is running at 100% capacity, according to the source.
