SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanghai Chlor-Alkali Chemical (SCAC) plans to restart its 370,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in Caojing on 17 December after one week of maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The PVC plant was taken off line on 9 December because there was a shortage of raw material for its production, the source added.

The Chinese producer is offering its PVC material at yuan (CNY) 6,750/tonne ($1,080/tonne), inclusive of freight, in east China as of 12 December.

SCAC had earlier targeted its PVC output for December at around 5,000 tonnes, but the total amount may be reduced because of the shutdown.
