SP Chemical also operates a 600,000 dmt/year chlor-alkali line at Taixing.
“The total 750,000 dmt/year chlor-alkali project will be operated at full rate after the 150,000 dmt/year chlor-alkali line restart,” the source said.
The restart of the 150,000 dmt/year line has bolstered local buyers’ sentiment, with the domestic price of 32% ion-exchange membrane caustic soda falling by 10% week on week to yuan (CNY) 2,656/dmt ($420/dmt) on 26 December, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
Major chlor-alkali producers in east China include Shanghai Chlor-Alkali Chemical (Shanghai CA), Zhejiang Juhua, Jiangsu Meilan, Suzhou Fine, Jiangsu Leeman, and Yangnong Chemical.
