SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sanfangxiang Group plans to conduct maintenance for its 1.2m tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) unit at Jiangyin in Jiangsu province in early May instead of late April, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant maintenance is expected to last for around 20 days, the source added.

Sanfangxiang postponed the plant shutdown from late April to early May, because the delivery of replacement parts for the PTA unit was delayed, the source said.

“It (the shutdown period) will not affect supply, as we have stocked up on some inventories,” the source added.
