BASF-YPC to shut 76,000 tonne/year China ethanolamines plant

ICIS News : 1-Aug-13 04:44

SINGAPORE (ICIS)--BASF-YPC Co Ltd will take its 76,000 tonne/year ethanolamines plant at Nanjing in China off line for regular maintenance from 10 August, industry sources said on Thursday.

The plant, the largest ethanolamines unit in the country, will be shut for around two to three weeks, they said.

BASF-YPC declined to comment.

The maintenance will coincide with the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, during which a mandatory shutdown of factories in the industrial belt was issued by the Chinese government to curb pollution, sources said.
