SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Befar Group is currently running its two propylene oxide (PO) facilities in Shandong province at full capacity following the units’ restart mid-week after a brief outage, sources close to the company said on Friday.

Its 80,000 tonne/year and 110,000 tonne/year PO units at Binzhou city had an unexpected shutdown on 24 September due to minor mechanical issues related to heat supply, the sources said.

The plants resumed operations on 26 September, they said.

Befar Group is the one of the largest domestic providers of PO in China. It supplies PO largely to end-users in the northern and eastern parts of the country.
