SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Xuzhou Haitian has restarted its 200,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Jiangsu province on Wednesday as it has secured enough propylene feedstock to resume production at the facility, a company source said on Wednesday.

The plant was shut down on 26 August, partly because of feedstock shortage, the source said.

The company has now received its propylene shipments, which were affected by inclement weather.

The plant, which is now producing PP raffia yarn, will switch to production of PP injection after two days, the source said.
