SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Yicheng Shindoo Chemical plans to restart its 450,000 tonne/year soda ash unit in Hubei province on 31 May, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant was shut on 26 May for scheduled maintenance, the source said.

The company plans to keep the facility operating at 80% of capacity in June because of weak demand, the source said.

Its soda ash output in June will stand at about 30,000 tonnes, unchanged from May’s total production after taking into account the five-day shutdown of the unit, the source said.

Yicheng Shindoo was offering light-grade soda ash at yuan (CNY) 1,200/tonne ($196/tonne) EXW (ex-works) on 30 May.

The company is a subsidiary of Chengdu Shindoo Chemical, which is based in Sichuan province and is mainly engaged in the production of soda ash and fertilizer
