SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Hengli Petrochemical plans to start up its 2.2m tonne/year No 2 purified terephthalic acid (PTA) unit at Dalian in Liaoning province in the second half of October, ahead of its original yearend schedule, a company sources said on Thursday.

The company has prepared sufficient feedstock paraxylene (PX) for the start-up of the second PTA plant and is seeking more PX contract supply for 2013, the source said.

Its No 1 PTA plant at the site with the same 2.2m tonne/year capacity is currently running at close to full capacity after a successful start-up on 15 September, the source said.
