SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Luoyang Petrochemical plans to restart its 140,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Henan province on 23 October, a company source said.
The PP line was shut on 12 October because of a shortage in feedstock, the source said.
The unexpected shutdown is not likely to have a significant impact on the PP market given its small capacity, said a trader in northern China.
The company’s other PP plant, with a capacity of 80,000 tonnes/year, is currently running at 100% operating rate and producing fibre.
