SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Yangzi Petrochemical on 20 August restarted its 180,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant at Nanjing in Jiangsu province after shutting it on 14 July for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Monday.
The unit also produces about 1,000 tonnes/month of diethylene glycol (DEG), a co-product of MEG.
The production loss during the shutdown was 1,000 tonnes for DEG and 15,000 tonnes for MEG.
The restart is expected to have a limited impact on the DEG market, as the plant’s output is low.
