SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Shanghai Gaoqiao plans to shut its 120,000 tonne/year butadiene rubber (BR) plant in Shanghai on 10 October for regular maintenance, an industry source said on Friday.
The plant will be shut for about 40 days, the source said, adding that the plant is currently running at full capacity.
“The shutdown may support BR prices in the domestic market because of the large capacity at the plant," a market player said.
Sinopec Shanghai Gaoqiao is a major BR producer in east China.
