SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Daqing petrochemical plans to restart its 80,000 tonne/year acrylonitrile (ACN) plant in Daqing city of Heilongjiang province on 20 August, a company source said on Monday.

The plant was shut down for about 15 days for routine maintenance on 4 August, the source said.

The maintenance had no impact on the ACN market, because it mainly supplies to its downstream facilities; an acrylic fiber (AF) unit and an acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) plant, the source said.

The 65,000tonnes/year AF plant at the same site was also shut down on 4 August and will be brought back on line on 22 August, the source said.

The 100,000 tonne/year ABS plant was shut down on 5 August and will be restarted on 21 August, the source added.
