SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Tianjin Lugang Petroleum and Rubber has achieved on-spec product at its new 100,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) unit on 30 March, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The new plant was started up earlier this week, though it was originally scheduled to start up by the end of 2010. The delay was caused by some technical issues, the source said.
The feedstock butadiene (BD) for the new plant is supplied by Tianjin Petrochemical Co, the joint venture between Sinopec and SABIC, the source added.
Tianjin Lugang Petroleum and Rubber is a privately owned rubber producer, based in Tianjin of north China.
