It was not immediately clear why the restart was postponed. The plant was supposed to restart this week.

The plant, which can produce 400,000 mt/year of phenol and 250,000 mt/year of acetone, has been shut for about 40 days of scheduled maintenance.

Phenol prices were last assessed at $1,010/mt CFR China and acetone at $380/mt CFR China, April 9.
