SINGAPORE (ICIS)–China has imposed anti-dumping duties (ADD) on imports of methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) from South Korea, Japan and South Africa for another five years starting 20 March 2024, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said.

There were no changes in the duty rates, which range from 15.9% to 190.4% depending on origin.
