SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Wuhan Petrochemical plans to start up its two 300,000 tonne/year polyethylene (PE) plants and a 400,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Hubei province in mid-July, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The company conducted trial runs at the plants in mid-June.
One of the PE plants has produced on-spec high-density polyethylene (HDPE), while the other units have yet to yield on-spec products, the source said.
Wuhan Petrochemical is a joint venture between China’s Sinopec and South Korea’s SK Group.
