SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Tongliao GEM Chemical plans to shut its 150,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Inner Mongolia on 28 March for a two-week overhaul, a company source said on Wednesday.

The MEG capacity was changed into 150,000 tonnes/year from 200,000 tonnes/year previously, but the company source declined to disclose the specific date.

The plant suffered some mechanical issues because of the cold weather earlier this year and either the operating rate had to be cut or maintenance carried out, its parent firm Danhua Chemical Technology said in a statement filed with the Shanghai Stock Exchange on 27 March.
