SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Datang Duolun Coal Chemical has started to sell propylene from its methanol-to-propylene (MTP) complex in the domestic spot market from mid-January, a company source said on Friday.

The complex, located at Duolun in northern Inner Mongolia province, can produce 460,000 tonnes/year propylene, the source said.

The company could sell around 300 tonnes of propylene in the spot market each day as its downstream 460,000 tonnes/year polypropylene unit was taken off line, a source close to the company said.

The MTP unit mainly produces propylene with gasoline and LPG as co-products, according to the company source. It can produce 182,200 tonne/year of gasoline and 42,000 tonne/year of LPG.

Datang Duolun Coal Chemical is a joint venture between China Datang and Datang International Power Generation.
