SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Guangxi Luzhai Fertilizer on 13 September restarted its 240,000 tonne/year diammonium phosphate (DAP) plant at Guangxi in south China after shutting it on 7 August because of weak demand, a company source said on Friday.
“We resumed production because we plan to export 6,000 tonnes of DAP to India in late September,” said the source.
The plant can produce 240,000 tonnes/year of DAP and 100,000 tonnes/year of monoammonium phosphate (MAP), according to the source.
The restart is unlikely to have a significant impact on the domestic market because the plant’s capacity is small, the source added.
