SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Dalian West Pacific Petrochemical (WEPEC) plans to shut its 100,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at Dalian in Liaoning province on 25 March for regular maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The turnaround will last for about one week, the source added.

The plant's shutdown will not have a significant impact on the domestic PP market because of its small capacity, according to market players.
