SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Wuhan Petrochemical has conducted trial runs at its two 300,000 tonne/year polyethylene (PE) plants and a 400,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Hubei province earlier this week, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
In addition, the company has shut its 100,000 tonne/year PP plant at the same site in early June to allocate feedstock supply for the trial runs, the source said.
The company plans to start up the new PE and PP plants on 28 June, the source added.
Wuhan Petrochemical is a joint venture between Sinopec and South Korea’s SK Group.
