SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Wuhan Petrochemical has delayed trial runs at its two new polyethylene (PE) plants and a polypropylene (PP) plant in Hubei province, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The delay was because of a technical issue at the plants, and the company will conduct the trial runs in June, the source added.

The high density polyethylene (HDPE) and  linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plants, with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year each, were originally scheduled to undergo test runs on 18 May, while trial runs for the 400,000 tonne/year PP plant were initially set on 8 May.
