SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Liaoyang Petrochemical, a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina, is running its 140,000 tonne/year adipic acid (ADA) plant at full capacity after it was restarted in early this week, a company source said on Wednesday.

“The plant has restarted and is running at full capacity,” the source said, but declined to specify the actual date when the plant resumed operations.

The plant, which is located at Liaoyang in China’s northeastern Liaoning province, was taken off line around mid-June for scheduled maintenance.

Chinese domestic adipic acid producers include Liaoyang Petrochemical, Shandong Haili, Shandong Hongye, Xinjiang Tianli and Henan Shenma.

Adipic acid is used to produce polyurethane (PU).
