SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Tongliao Jinmei Chemical, a subsidiary of Danhua Technology Co, had to shut down its 200,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Inner Mongolia because of a breakdown at a reactor, a company source said on Thursday.

A fracture of one mixer shaft led to the breakdown of the reactor on 28 December, according to a statement from Danhua.

The MEG plant was shut down after the incident, the source said. A restart date was not immediately known.

Tongliao Jinmei’s MEG plant in Inner Mongolia is the first unit in China which is using coal as feedstock to produce MEG products.
