SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Jiangsu Jiangnan High Polymer Fiber restarted its two polyester lines, which have a combined capacity of  350,000 tonnes/year, at Suzhou on 17 February, a company source said on Tuesday.

The two lines were shut down in early January to prevent an inventory build-up leading to the Lunar New Year holiday on 9-15 February, the source said.

Production at the polyester lines in Jiangsu province will be ramped up to 100% this week, the company source said.

The lines can produce polyester staple fiber (PSF), according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
