SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Liaoyang Petrochemical, a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina, shut down its second adipic acid (ADA) line in Liaoning province this week for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The line has the same 70,000 tonnes/year capacity as the first line that was shut in April.

“The second line was shut down on Monday to undergo a two-month turnaround,” the source said.

The company’s adipic acid plant with a total capacity of 140,000 tonnes/year is located in northeast China. The full capacity is expected to be restarted in September, the source said.
