The project obtained approval from the authorities last week, the source said.

“The propane separated from imported natural gas will be used [as feedstock] for the new propylene project,” the source said in Mandarin.
The propylene produced at the upcoming facility will be used to feed the PP plant, which is undergoing feasibility studies and expected to come on stream in two to three years.
