SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Haili Chemical Industry plans to start up one of its two 150,000 tonne/year adipic acid (ADA) plants in Jiangsu in mid-August, following earlier delays because of poor market conditions, a company official said on Wednesday.

The plant was initially scheduled to be started up in December 2011, which was further postponed to May 2012.

The company official did not provide further details about the second plant.

Meanwhile, Shandong Haili has an existing ADA facility at Zibo in Shandong province which has a combined capacity of 225,000 tonnes/year.

The company has kept one of the three ADA lines in Zibo, with an annual capacity of 75,000 tonnes/year each, shut since early July because of weak demand from the downstream nylon 66 tyre cord, polyurethane (PU), synthetic leather and shoe sole sectors, the official added.

The other two units are currently running at 70-80% capacity.
