SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shenyang Jinbilan Chemical shut its 40,000 tonne/year propylene oxide (PO) unit at Shenyang in Liaoning province over the weekend after a fire broke out at the facility on 6 April, a company source said on Tuesday.

The company also shut its downstream 40,000 tonne/year polyether polyol plant because of a lack of raw material as a result of the fire, the source added.

No other details were immediately available and it was not known when the plants would be restarted.

Shenyang Jinbilan is a subsidiary of Shenyang Chemical, which manufactures caustic soda, hydrochloric acid (HCl), liquid chlorine and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), among other products.
