SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Gansu Yinguang Chemical restarted its 100,000 tonne/year toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) facility on 20 August after a scheduled shutdown, market sources said on Wednesday.

The company is expected to ramp up the facility's operating rates gradually over the next few days, the sources added.

The unit, located at Baiyin, Gansu province, in north-western China, was taken offline on 30 July for annual maintenance.

The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of state-owned China North Chemical Industries, which manufactures explosives and related equipment for military and civil applications.
