SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanghai Wujing has delayed the 20-day maintenance shutdown of its 450,000 tonne/year acetic acid plant by around one month to the middle of March, a company official said on Monday.

The plant was initially scheduled to shut on 15 February but this had to be pushed back because of a delay in the arrival of parts required in the feedstock carbon monoxide (CO) facility, the official added.

The company’s other acetic acid line, with a 250,000 tonnes/year capacity, will run normally at full tilt during the shutdown of the bigger unit.

Other key producers in China include Celanese, BP, Jiangsu Sopo, Henan Shunda, Yankuang Cathay Coal Chemicals, Hebei Yingdu Gasification Co Ltd and Hualu Hengsheng.
