SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Yongjin Chemical is planning to restart its 200,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit at Xinxiang, Henan province on 20 April after shutting it for maintenance early this week, a company source said on Wednesday.
The unit started up in September last year, the source said.
While most MEG are used in the downstream polyester sectors, the company’s MEG product is now used only for the antifreeze solution industry because of some technical problems, the source added.
The company is a 50:50 joint venture between Henan Coal Chemical Industry Group and Tongliao GEM Chemical.
