SHANGHAI(ICIS news)--China-based Sichuan Meifeng restarted its melamine plant over the weekend after a shutdown of nearly a month following the earthquake that struck the southwestern province of Sichuan, a company source said on Tuesday.
“We restarted the plant [in Mianyang country] over the weekend and operation is normal,” the source said in Mandarin.
Sichuan Chemical Works recently restarted two melamine lines in the provincial capital Chengdu, a company source said on Wednesday.
However, domestic melamine prices were still pegged around yuan (CNY) 11,500-12,000/tonne ($1,662-1,734/tonne) EXW (ex-works) amid limited availability and weak downstream demand.
