SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Jilantai Salt Chemical plans to shut its 360,000 dry metric tonne (dmt)/year caustic soda plant in Inner Mongolia on 26 June, a company source said on Tuesday.
The company is expected to take the plant off line for 10 days of maintenance, the source added.
Jilantai Chlor-Alkali Chemical, which sells the output from Jilantai Salt Chemical, quoted offers at yuan (CNY) 1,800/dmt ($294/tonne) for 32% liquid membrane caustic soda and at CNY1,950/dmt for 48% liquid membrane caustic soda on 25 June, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
The domestic caustic soda prices have slightly decreased recently as a result of adequate supply of caustic soda, a market source said.
Jilantai Salt Chemical, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China National Salt Industry Corp (CNSIC), is a producer of calcium carbide, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and caustic soda.
