SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shaoxing Sanyuan Petrochemical has postponed the start-up of its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit at Shaoxing in Zhejiang province to early next year, a company source said on Wednesday.
The PDH unit, which is expected to produce around 450,000 tonnes/year of propylene, was previously scheduled to come on stream in November or December this year, he added without providing further details.
Propylene from the PDH unit will be fed to the company’s two derivative polypropylene (PP) units in Shaoxing, which have a combined nameplate capacity of around 500,000 tonnes/year.
