The yuan (CNY) 398m ($63m) BD plant had its name plate capacity raised to 100,000 tonnes/year from the initial plan of 70,000 tonne/year because of positive outlook of downstream rubber market, the producer said in a statement to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
After the start-up, half of the BD output will be for captive use at its 50,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant and the rest will be sold in the spot market.
