SHANGHAI (ICIS)--Fujian Jinjiang Technology plans to start up a new 45,000 tonne/year nylon-chip line at Changle, in China's Fujian province, in September, a company source said on Friday.

The new line is part the first phase of a project that includes three nylon-chip lines with a total capacity of 200,000 tonnes/year, the source said.

The other two lines, with capacities of 45,000 tonnes/year and 110,000 tonnes/year, are expected to come on stream at the end of 2011, the source added.

The line's nylon-chip output will supply Fujian Jinjiang Technology's downstream textile-yarn plant, which has a capacity of 125,000 tonnes/year, the source said.

The producer plans to expand its nylon-yarn capacity to 200,000 tonnes/year in 2012, the source added.

According to industry sources, Fujian Jinjiang Technology is starting up the lines to address the tight supply of nylon chips in the domestic market.

In April 2010, China's Ministry of Commerce imposed antidumping duites ranging from 4% to 96.5% on nylon 6 chips imported from the US, EU, Russia and Taiwan. The duties will be levied for five years since they were imposed.
