SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Shuntian Chemical Group is planning to start up its new 30,000 tonne/year melamine plant in Shandong next week, a company source said on Friday.

The plant was scheduled to come on stream at the start of this year but the start-up was delayed because of bearish market conditions, the source said.

“We completed the construction work last month and began trial runs at this plant at the beginning of this month,” the source added.

The company is running another 6,000 tonne/year melamine plant at the same site at full rate, according to the source.

The start-up of the new melamine plant is will unlikely have a significant impact on spot prices of the material because of weak demand from downstream sectors, an industry source added.
