SINGAPORE(ICIS)--China’s Jilin Petrochemical is keeping the operating rates of its No 2 106,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) unit in Jilin province at 80% capacity following its restart in early June, a company source said on Thursday.
The ACN plant was operating at 80% capacity before it was shut down, the source said.
However, its 106,000 tonne/year No 1 ACN unit remains off line, the source said, without disclosing further details.
According to market sources, the restart of the three ACN units has limited impact on the domestic spot market, because of the current weak demand.
