SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Tian Hua Chemicals ramped up the operating rates at its 28,000 tonne/year epichlorohydrin (ECH) line at Tianjin province to 80-90% early this week, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company was running the line at 50% on 8 July following a shutdown on 1 July, the source said.

The company’s other 32,000 tonne/year ECH line at the same site remains shut since 8 July. It expects to restart this line at the end of this week, according to the source.

The ECH plant in Tianjin, which has a total capacity of 60,000 tonnes/year, was partially shut because of poor domestic demand.
