SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Suzhou Huasu Plastics restarted its 130,000 tonne/year ethylene-based polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in Suzhou of Jiangsu province on 7 April, a company source said on Tuesday.
The company shut the unit on 26 March for scheduled maintenance, the source said.
The company is offering its April PVC product at yuan (CNY) 6,950/tonne ($1,119/tonne) EXW (ex-works), according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
Affected by tight supply of feedstock vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), the company plans to shut its PVC plant again for a week in mid-to-late April, the source said.
