SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Qilu is planning to restart its 70,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant at Zibo in east China on 18 May, a company source said on Friday.

"The plant has been shut since 8 April," the source said, adding that the shutdown was for regular maintenance.

The producer is also running its 250,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) unit at the same site in Zibo at “normal” rates, the source said without giving the exact run rate.
