SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jialong Petrochemical Fibre is operating its 600,000 tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) unit at full capacity after it was restarted during the weekend, a company source said on Tuesday.

The plant was shut around 9-10 July because of a minor mechanical problem in a compressor, the source said.

“The problem was much smaller than we had expected and so it was very easily fixed,” the source added.

Jialong Petrochemical Fibre is located at Shishi city in southern Fujian province.
