SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Sinopec SABIC Tianjin Petrochemical has shut its 300,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Tianjing city on 15 March for about five days, a company source said on Monday.
This turnaround is due to high feedstock costs and poor demand, the source added.
This shutdown may have little influence on the market on the back of its short duration, market sources said.
The company is running its 300,000 tonne/year linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant in the same site at 100% capacity.
