SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xin Jiang Blue Ridge Tunhe Polyester plans to restart its 60,000 tonne/year natural-grade polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) plant in Xinjiang province on June 20, a company source said on Tuesday.

The unit was shut down on 15 May because of high inventory, the source said.

The shutdown is expected to have little impact on China’s PBT market as downstream demand is weak and inventory is high, a local distributor said.
