SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanghai Wujing may restart operations at its 450,000 tonne/year acetic acid plant at Wujing in early April, a company official said on Monday.

The plant was taken off line on 14 March for a turnaround, the official said, adding that the restart date of the unit can still change.

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

“Daily acetic acid output was at 1,400-1,500 tonnes prior to the shutdown of the 450,000 tonne/year plant,” he said.

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