SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Jiangsu Sabron Petrochemical is running its 100,000 tonne/year polystyrene (PS) unit at Zhangjiagang in Jiangsu province at 50% capacity after restarting it on 15 November, a company source said on Thursday.
The unit was shut around the middle of October because of Jiangsu Sabron was making losses as a result of high raw material costs, the source added.
Before the shutdown, the unit also was running at 50% capacity, according to the source.
The unit’s output will be available in the east China market by the week of 19 November, the distributor added.
