SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Hebei Fengmei Coking Company has achieved on-spec production at its 200,000 tonne/year methanol unit at Handan in Hebei province in early April, a company source said on Monday.

The company is currently debugging the unit and is expected to ramp up the operation rate to “normal” at the end of this month, the source said.

The unit, which uses coke-oven exhaust as its feedstock, was started up at the end of March, the source said.

The company is running its 100,000 tonne/year methanol unit at the same site normally, the source said adding that the plant was started up in the second quarter of 2008.

Hebei Fengmei Coking is a subsidiary company of Jizhong Energy Fengfeng Group.
