China extends antidumping probe on US, EU monobutyl ether

BEIJING, CHINA: China’s Ministry of Commerce is extending its anti-dumping probe on ethylene glycol monobutyl ether and diethylene glycol monobutyl ether imports from the US and the European Union (EU). The probe, which was launched on 18 November 2011, will be extended for another three months to 18 February 2013 due to the complexity of the case.

In July, the ministry preliminarily ruled that the US and the EU dumped monobutyl ether products, which are widely used as solvent in water-based paints, on the Chinese market. Preliminary investigations showed that the dumping margins of companies from the US and the EU ranged from 9.3 per cent to 18.8 per cent. The dumping practices have caused material damage to Chinese producers, the ministry said.
