SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Huamao New Materials is running its 100,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant in Shandong province at 50% of capacity after resuming production at the end of October, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant was taken off line in late September  for maintenance, the source said.

BR prices rose by yuan (CNY )100-200/tonne ($16-33/tonne) to CNY 12,100-13,000/tonne EXWH (ex-warehouse) east China on 28 November on the back of higher feedstock butadiene (BD) costs, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
