LONDON (ICIS)--Italy-based Polynt has restarted its maleic anhydride (MA) plant in Ravenna, a company source said on Friday.

The source said that the plant “has been restarted successfully and full production capacity will be reached shortly.”

The producer halted operations at the plant early last week owing to technical problems.

The Ravenna facility, which uses n-butane as a feedstock, has a nameplate capacity of around 65,000 tonnes/year.

Polynt also has a benzene-based MA plant at Scanzorosciate with a nameplate capacity of around 36,000 tonnes/year.
