LONDON (ICIS)--Italian chemicals producer Versalis’s butadiene (BD) unit at Brindisi is back online following maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

Last week, the unit was in the restart process.

Maintenance at the 145,000 tonnes/year facility was originally slated to take place at the end of August but was taken offline a couple of weeks earlier because of poor market conditions.

Versalis owns and operates two BD extraction units in Italy. The other is a 140,000 tonne/year unit in Ravenna, according to ICIS data.
