SINGAPORE (ICIS)--AkzoNobel is currently running its 80,000 tonne/year ethanolamines plant at Ningbo in Zhejiang, China, at 70% capacity, a source close to the Dutch-headquartered producer said on Wednesday.

The January run rates were similar to the levels in December, he added.

The supply of amines across all grades has tightened lately in China owing to domestic plant maintenance, as well as other plant maintenance from a major supplier in southeast Asia, other market sources said.
