GUANGZHOU (ICIS)--China’s Maoming Petrochemical achieved a historically high ethylene (C2) output of 96,600 tonnes in August, its parent company Sinopec said on Thursday.

Its average daily output of the material exceeded 3,100 tonnes, up by 5.5% year on year, through better management and production control, Sinopec said in an online newsletter.

Maoming Petrochemical runs two naphtha crackers with a combined capacity of 1m tonnes/year at Maoming in Guangdong province.

The company’s ethylene output is kept primarily for captive use to produce derivatives such as polyethylene (PE), according to a Maoming Petrochemical source.
