SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shenyang Paraffin Chemical has restarted its catalytic pyrolysis process (CPP) unit in Shenyang, Liaoning province, on 24 April, a company source said on Wednesday.

The unit was shut down on 24 March because of some technical issues, the source said without providing details.

The CPP unit can produce 240 tonnes/day propylene. It also produces ethylene, naphtha, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and other by-products.

The source added that the company’s 135,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at the same site also resumed operations on 24 April after it was shut on 20 March due to feedstock shortages. The company plans to start propylene sales one week later.
