The plant was started up on 18 October, the source said.
“We are currently operating the plant at 50% capacity, and there are limited cargoes available for sales,” the company source said.
PA is used to produce downstream dioctyl phthalate (DOP).
The company has a 100,000tonne/year (DOP) plant at the same site that was taken off line over the weekend of 20-21 October. The DOP plant will be connected through a pipeline to the new PA plant and is expected to restart next week, the source said.
