SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Tasco Chemical will resume spot methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) exports in January following a stoppage that began in October, a company source said on Thursday.

The halt was to cater to increased requirements from its contract customers due to tight supplies during Q4, the source said.

Tasco Chemical is the sole MEK producer in Taiwan with its 60,000 tonne/year plant located in Kaohsiung.
