SINGAPORE (ICIS)-Taiwan's Oriental Union Chemical Corp (OUCC) is operating one of its two 40,000 tonne/year ethanolamines units in Kaohsiung at 40% capacity, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The run rates are below half the nameplate capacity because of the current weak demand in Asia, he said.

Meanwhile, the other unit at the same site remains shut and there is no plan to restart it, the source added.
