SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xinji Jiuyuan Chemical is planning to start up its new 30,000 tonne/year melamine plant in Hebei province in September, a company source said on Tuesday.

The plant was scheduled to come on stream this month, but the start-up was delayed because of a technical issue at the plant, the source added.

The company is running another 30,000 tonne/year melamine plant at the same site at full rate, according to the source.

The start-up of the new plant may have little impact on the spot prices in domestic market as the downstream demand remains weak, but may have some impact on the prices in north China, the source said.
