SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Chinese epichlorohydrin (ECH) major Shandong Haili Chemical shut down its 240,000 tonne/year plant in Zibo, Shandong province due to weak demand and mounting inventory pressure, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
“The plant was taken offline in late October, and could restart on 8 November,” said the official in Mandarin.
Haili operates three ECH lines with annual capacities of 80,000 tonne/year each on the site in eastern China.
Listed ECH prices were now pegged at yuan (CNY) 9,000/tonne ($1,316/tonne) ?xml:namespace>
