SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Xuzhou Fengcheng Salt Chemical plans to restart its 600,000 tonne/year soda ash unit in Jiangsu province on Thursday afternoon, a company source said.

The plant was shut on 9 January for scheduled maintenance, according to the source.

The company was operating the plant at 90-100% of capacity before the maintenance, the source added.

The producer kept its offers for light-grade soda ash stable at yuan (CNY) 1,170-1,180/tonne ($188-189/tonne) EXW (ex-works) on 9 January, according to source.

However, the producer increased its co-product ammonium chloride (AC) prices to CNY800-900/tonne EXW on 9 January, CNY50/tonne higher than its offers before the maintenance, the source added.
