SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China-based Tianjin Bohai Chemical plans to restart its 165,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in Tianjin on 19 April following a maintenance shutdown that started on 17 April, a company source said on Thursday.
The company was running the plant at 40-50% of capacity before the shutdown, the source added.
The producer quoted prices at yuan (CNY) 6,600/tonne ($1,070/tonne) EXW (ex-works) on 18 April, unchanged from prices before the shutdown, according to Chemease, an ICIS Service in china.
The turnaround will have limited impact on the domestic PVC sport market in view of its short period, a trader said.
