This article states that activity has picked up in the oleochemicals market recently. Ultrapar subsidiary Oxiteno based in São Paulo, Brazil has begun construction of its previously announced $120-million fatty alcohols plant at Camaçari, Brazil, and Procter & Gamble Chemicals says it has put plans "on hold" for its FPG Oleochemicals in Kuantan, Malaysia, joint venture to build a 120,000-m.t./year fatty acids plant at Kuantan. P&G says it is evaluating whether the project is worth pursuing. The resources that would have gone into the plant will be used elsewhere, P&G says. The company did not provide further details. Oxiteno's plant will have capacity to produce about 100,000 m.t./year of fatty alcohols.
