LONDON (ICIS)--Italy-based Polynt’s maleic anhydride (MA) plant in Ravenna has halted production owing to technical problems, a company source said on Tuesday.
The source said that the issue is under investigation and more detailed information should be available soon.
Until the nature of the problem has been assessed, the likely duration of the shutdown cannot be estimated, the source said.
The Ravenna facility, which uses n-butane as a feedstock, has a nameplate capacity of around 65,000 tonnes/year, the source confirmed.
Polynt also has a benzene-based MA plant at Scanzorosciate with a nameplate capacity of around 36,000 tonnes/year.
