SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--China has launched an investigation on adipic acid (ADA) imports from the US, the European Union and South Korea from 10 November, in line with its anti-dumping (ADD) policy, the Ministry of Commerce said on Tuesday at its website.
The one-year probe is aimed at determining how the imports had hurt the domestic industry and whether there are reasonable grounds for the publication of a dumping notice.
Where justified, the ministry can approve an extension of the investigation period to 10 May 2010.
Adipic acid is primarily used in the production of nylon 6,6 and for manufacturing polyurethanes and polyester resins.
