LONDON (ICIS)--Italian chemicals producer Versalis’ butadiene (BD) unit at Brindisi, Italy, is expected to be up and running by the end of this week, a company source said on Wednesday.

“We are in the process of restarting, we expect to produce within the coming days,” the source said.

Maintenance at the 145,000 tonnes/year facility was originally slated to take place at the end of August but was taken offline a couple of weeks earlier because of poor market conditions. Last week, another source had said the restart process had begun.

Versalis owns and operates two BD extraction units in Italy - the other is a 140,000 tonne/year unit in Ravenna, according to ICIS data.
