SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Wuhan Petrochemical shut its 100,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in early June in Hubei province, a source close to the company said over the weekend of 8-9 June.

The shutdown of the PP plant is to allow feedstock to be diverted to the company's new 400,000 tonne/year PP plant for the conducting of trial runs in the week of 10 June, the source said.

Wuhan Petrochemical is a joint venture between Sinopec and South Korea’s SK Group.
