SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Mitsubishi Chemical Polycarbonate (Beijing) is running its 150,000 tonne/year bisphenol A (BPA) unit at Yanshan in Beijing at 70% capacity because of prevailing weak market conditions, a source close to the company said on Friday.

The BPA unit was running at full capacity prior to the run rate cut on 2 July, the source said.

The company is a joint venture between Chinese major Sinopec, and Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemical and Mitsubishi Engineering Plastics.
