JFE reduces operating rates at two benzene plants

January 23, 2013 (Japan)

Japan-based JFE chemical has reduced operating rates at its two benzene plants.
 
“The benzene plant located in Kasaoka is running at 60 percent capacity rates and the Chiba plant is operating at 50 percent production rates”, a JFE official told fibre2fashion
 
“Our operating rates are dependent on supply and price trends of Crude benzene derived from coke”, he revealed when asked about the reason behind lowering rates.  
 
When quizzed on upcoming maintenance schedules, he said, “Turnaround at the Kasaoka plant would take place in April 2013 and in Chiba, it is likely to happen in October 2013.”
 
Each of the benzene plants has a capacity of 110,000 tons per annum.
