SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shandong Huamao New Materials Co plans to bring on stream its new 150,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) unit at Dongying in Shandong province in the second half of 2013, a company source said on Friday.

Construction of the unit, located at Dongying Port Economic Development Zone, started on 30 June, the source said without disclosing the financial details.

The unit is expected to come on stream in the second half of this year, but the specific start-up date depends on the construction process, the source added.

The BD output of the new unit will be mainly supplied to the company’s downstream 100,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and 100,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) units located at the same site, the source said.
