SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--China’s Liaoning Huajin Tongda Chemical Industry Corp, a subsidiary of Liaoning Huajin Chemical Industry Group, has postponed the trial production at its new polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) facilities to October, a company source said on Tuesday.

The trial production at the new facilities at Panjin, Liaoning province, were due to have started in May/June but the start up was postponed because the producer’s existing facilities were restarted only in May this year, the source said.

The new facilities consist of a 300,000 tonne/year high-density (HD) PE unit and a 230,000 tonne/year PP unit.

“Our existing facilities, consisting of a 50,000 tonne/year PP unit and a 140,000 tonne/year HDPE/linear low density (LLDPE) swing plant, resumed production in May, after being shut for around six months as the previous owner went through a bankruptcy procedure,” the source said in Mandarin.

The facilities were previously owned by Panjin Ethylene, he said.

The existing HDPE/LLDPE swing plant produces mainly yarn and injection grades HDPE, he added.
