SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Datang International Power Generation restarted its two 250,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) lines in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on 20 August after completing their maintenance, a company source said.

The two PP lines, which produce PP raffia yarn, are operating at below 100%, the source said.

The lines were shut on 30 June according to the original schedule, the source added.

Market sentiment was dampened to some extent following the news of the restart, a market player said.

Cheaper cargoes could be available in the market with the significant increase in PP spot supply after the restart of Datang’s two PP lines, he added.
