SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Fushun Petrochemical is running its 92,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) plant at Fushun city in Liaoning province at 95% capacity, following its restart on 6 June, a company source said on Monday.

The ACN plant successfully produced output on 8 June after it came on stream, the source added.

The ACN plant was shut on 17 May for maintenance in tandem with the shutdown of the producer’s upstream refinery on 13 May for about a month-long annual maintenance, the source said.

The ACN plant was operating at 95% capacity before its shutdown, the source added.

Fushun Petrochemical has a 55,000 tonne/year derivative acrylic fibre (AF) plant that has been off line since 6 June last year because of weak market conditions, the source added.
