SHANGHAI (ICIS news)--Dushanzi Petrochemical, a subsidiary of PetroChina, restarted its 170,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) plant this week in line with the restart of its 1m tonne/year cracker at the same site, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The BD plant was taken off line at the end of December last year after the upstream cracker was shut down due to a technical fault on 23 December 2009, the source said.

The company’s 80,000 tonne/year styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) plant and 100,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant, which are the downstream plants of the BD line, were also restarted at the same time as the BD plant, the source added.

The plants and cracker are located at the city of Dushanzi, in China’s northwestern Xinjiang province.
