SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Jiaxing Petrochemical plans to start up its new 1.5m tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in Zhejiang province in east China over the weekend, a company source said on Friday

"We aim to achieve on-spec production in early September," the source said.

The company has completed the last round of trial runs at the plant this week and “is ready for a start-up”, the source added.

The start-up schedule has been postponed several times sine April because of slower delivery of imported machinery parts, the source added.
