SINGAPORE(ICIS)-China’s Anqing Petrochemical is in the process of restarting its 80,000tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) plant in Anhui province, a company source said on Thursday.
The plant’s maintenance was extended from the initial plan of 20 days because of power supply issues around mid-May, the source said.
The company’s other ACN plant at the site, with a 130,000 tonne/year capacity, was also taken off line during the power outage and was restarted in the week ended 24 May. This unit is now running at full capacity, the source said.
Anqing Petrochemical’s downstream 70,000 tonne/year acrylic fibre (AF) plant at the site is currently running at 85% of capacity because of poor demand, the source said.
