SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Sinopec Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical has restarted its 45,000 tonne/year butyl rubber plant at Yanshan on 29 August, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The plant was taken off line on 23 August for scheduled maintenance, said the source, adding that the shutdown was longer than four days as originally planned.

The source refused to elaborate on the reasons that caused the delay in the start-up.
