SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Chang Zhou Dohow Chemical, a subsidiary of Yabang Group, plans to shut down its 200,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) unit at Changzhou in eastern Jiangsu province from 10 February for one month of maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

Another Yabang Group subsidiary, Chang Zhou New Solar Chemical, will continue normal operations at its 250,000 tonne/year SM unit at Changzhou and will meet the contract requirements of Dohow Chemical.

“The 200,000 tonne/year SM unit is expected to restart at the beginning of March. We will supply contract cargoes by the output from Chang Zhou New Solar Chemical during February,” the source said.

As a result, spot cargoes in east China will be reduced, the source added.
