DUBAI (ICIS)--China's Sanfangxiang has shut one of its six 200,000 tonne/year polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle chip lines at a facility in Jiangyin, Jiangsu province early this week for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.

“This scheduled maintenance will last for about two weeks and the PET line will be restarted in mid-August,” added the source at China’s largest PET bottle-grade chips producer.

The company's PET facility in Jiangyin was running at 85-90% of nameplate capacity, the source said.

Other major PET producers in China include China Resources Packaging, Zhuhai Yuhua, Yizheng and Far Eastern Industry Shanghai.
