SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Inner Mongolia Yihua Chemical, a subsidiary of Hubei Yihua Group, has restarted its 380,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in Inner Mongolia on 29 May after the plant was shut following an explosion on 25 May, a company source said on Wednesday.

“The explosion had not caused any casualties,” the source said without revealing further details.
