SHANGHAI (ICIS news)--China’s Shanghai Secco Petrochemical may restart one of its two 130,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) lines at its Caojing plant in eastern China this week, a company source said on Monday.

The company restarted its other line early last week, the source added.

The two lines were shut down for a turnaround in late May in line with debottlenecking at the firm’s upstream cracker.

Shanghai Secco is a joint-venture of Sinopec, Shanghai Petrochemical and BP.
