SHANGHAI (ICIS news)--China’s Liaoning Huajin Tongda Chemical Industry Corp, a subsidiary of Liaoning Huajin Chemical Industry Group, plans to start trial runs at its 450,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in late September, a company source said on Thursday.

"The upstream refinery has entered the trial runs process gradually, which will need some time to produce the feedstock for the cracker," the source said in Mandarin.

"The downstream chemical plants will also start test operations step by step," the source told ICIS news.

The new downstream plants include a 300,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) unit, a 230,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) unit and a 150,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) unit, according to an earlier report from ICIS news.

The refinery, cracker and the downstream units are located at Panjin, northeastern Liaoning province.

China North Industries Group Corp (CNGC), a Chinese military equipment producer, took a majority stake in Liaoning Huajin Chemical Industry Group in March 2006.
