China sees slow growth of treated distillate aromatic extract

September 05/2011

(ICIS) -- Chinas production of treated distillate aromatic extract (TDAE) for tyres is unlikely to grow significantly given the poor demand for the product, which costs 30% higher than the regular aromatics-based rubber oil, industry sources said on Monday.

The country started producing TDAE - considered an environmentally friendly rubber oil which is now required for tyre manufacturing in the EU - this year. The output in 2011 is estimated to be less than 10,000 tonnes, according to the producers of the rubber oil.

China has not been able to start exporting the product yet as only one producer has been able to meet EU standards.

The actual consumption of TDAE within China is at 12.7% of the countrys total rubber oil consumption, which was recorded at 786,700 tonnes in 2010, according to C1 Energy, an ICIS service in China.
