PetroChina’s Liaoyang to shut adipic acid plant for maintenance

SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Liaoyang Petrochemical, a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina, plans to shut its 140,000 tonne/year adipic acid (ADA) plant at Liaoyang in the northeastern Liaoning province on around 18 June for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

“The shutdown will last about 10 days,” the source said.

Most market players said the shutdown will not have a big impact on the market amid oversupply and weak demand.

ADA is mostly used to produce nylon 6,6 (polyamide 6,6) and polyurethanes (PU) that are used in shoe soles and polyester resins.
