The plant has a capacity to produce 30,000 tonnes/year of benzene, 60,000 tonnes/year of toluene and 60,000 tonnes/year of xylene, and it will use liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as feedstock, the source added.
The aromatics products will be sold largely to east and south China, and the producer plans to sell some toluene output to the downstream toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) industry while xylenes and toluene to the solvent market, according to the source.
The start-up will not have a significant impact on the market as its capacity is considered small by industry standards, according to a local trader.
