The plant was taken off line in the second half of April due to a shutdown of its downstream methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant, the source said.
The No 4 plant has been restarted to satisfy demand from a company’s new downstream 200,000tonne/year acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) plant due to start up in the end of September or early October, the source added.
The company is running unit No 2 and No 3 ACN plants at full capacity.
However, its No 1 plant is still shut down after the annual maintenance in June, the source said.
The company has no plans to restart the No 1 unit soon.
Jilin Petrochemical own four units with totally capacity of 452,000tonne/year. Its unit No 1 and No 2 each has a capacity of 106,000tonne/year, and No 3 and No 4 each has a capacity of 120,000tonne/year.
