LONDON (ICIS)--Oxochimie has ended a planned three-week turnaround at its oxo-alcohols plant in Lavera, France, a source at Arkema said on Wednesday.
The plant restarted on schedule at the weekend, the source said. The shutdown began during the weekend of 28-29 September.
The Arkema source had previously said that the turnaround would allow for a boiler change at the plant.
The Oxochimie complex at Lavera has a nameplate capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year of 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH), 150,000 tonnes/year of n-butanol (NBA) and 30,000 tonnes/year of isobutanol (IBA), according to ICIS data.
The Arkema source had declined to comment on plant capacities.
France’s Arkema is a joint venture partner in Oxochimie, along with Switzerland-headquartered INEOS Oxide.
