SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical plans to restart its 220,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit at Jinshan in Shanghai in the late afternoon of 20 June, a company source said on Thursday.
The MEG unit was shut down on 8 May for technical modifications that will allow it switch production to ethylene oxide (EO), the source added.
The producer’s other 380,000 tonne/year MEG unit at the same site is currently running at full capacity, the source said.
Meanwhile, Sinopec Wuhan Co will start up its new 280,000 tonne/year MEG unit in Hubei province in early July, in line with the start-up of its new naphtha cracker, the source said.
