SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Shanghai Gaoqiao Petrochemical plans to restart its 100,000 tonne/year phenol/acetone plant on 25 August, a source close to the company said on Friday.

The unit, which is located at Pudong in Shanghai, was taken off line on 31 July because of a lack of feedstock cumene, the source said.

The restart is not expected to have a major impact on supply-demand balance given ongoing shutdowns at local phenol/acetone facilities, market sources said.
