SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Fushun Petrochemical plans to test run its new 300,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) and 350,000 tonne/year HDPE capacity alongwith a new 450,000 tonne/year LLDPE plant at Fushun in Liaoning province later this month, a company source said on Monday.
The expanded HDPE plant will produce injection-grade material and the new PP capacity will produce yarn-grade material, the source added.
The company plans to achieve on-spec products toward the end of the month or early September following the start up planned for around the middle of August, the source said.
Local distributors said the supply of PE and PP may increase after the plants come on line.
The company has a 140,000 tonne/year HDPE plant and a 90,000 tonne/year PP plant.
