SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Haili Chemical Industry is running its 150,000 tonne/year adipic acid (ADA) plant in eastern Jiangsu province at full capacity after being restarted, a company source said on Tuesday.
“The plant is operating at 100% after the restart last week,” the source said, but declined to give the exact date.
The plant was shut on 2-3 March after a power outage.
The company’s other unit with the same capacity at the same site is also running at 100% currently, according to the source.
ADA is primarily used in the production of nylon 6,6 (or polyamide 6,6), as well as in the manufacturing of polyurethane (PU), which is used in the soles of shoes and in polyester resins.
