SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s state-owned Tianjin Soda Plant has delayed the start-up of its new 200,000 tonne/year acetic acid plant at Tianjin city as it has not received its feedstock supply, a company source said on Wednesday.

Construction of the plant and its new upstream methanol unit with a capacity of 500,000 tonnes/year at the same site were completed in December 2010, the source added.

However, Tianjin Soda was waiting for the supply from the coal-based methanol unit, which was expected to have a trial run in early March, the source said.

The plant was originally planned to start up in early January 2011, the source added.
