LONDON (ICIS)--INEOS has restarted its butadiene (BD) extraction unit in Grangemouth, the UK, a spokesman for the Swiss-headquartered producer said on Tuesday.

The BD unit which has the capacity to produce 71,000 tonnes/year was shut down alongside the refinery and all the other petrochemical units in mid-October in reaction to threats of strike action.

The issues were resolved and restart of the site commenced on 25 October.

INEOS also owns and operates a 245,000 tonne/year BD unit at its site in Cologne, in Germany.
