SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Fushun Petrochemical has delayed the restart of its 200,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant in Liaoning province to the second half of October, from early this month, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The SBR plant was shut down in mid-May, initially for a 40-day maintenance, but the restart has been repeatedly delays because of mechanical problems, market sources said.
Fushun Petrochemical’s 150,000 tonne/year butadiene (BD) plant at the same site was also taken off line in mid-May. The plant, which supplies feedstock to the SBR unit, is expected to be restarted in mid-October, the source said.
