SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--China’s BlueStar New Chemical Materials plans a brief maintenance shutdown of its 25,000 tonne/year bisphenol-A (BPA) line in Wuxi, Jiangsu province later this month, a source close to the company said on Friday.
The line would be taken off line on 31 May for around 3 days, the source added.
The shutdown was expected to have minimal impact on BPA prices given prevailing weak market sentiment, industry sources said.
BlueStar also runs a 16,000 tonne/year BPA line at the same site. Its new 90,000 tonne/year plant in Nantong, Jiangsu, was undergoing trial runs, the source said.
