SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Oxiranchem Yangzhou plans to start up its new 200,000 tonne/year ethylene oxide (EO) plant in Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, in July 2014, a company source said on Thursday.

The company is also looking at building another line with a similar capacity at the same site but this has yet to be confirmed, the source said.

Oxiranchem is expected to import the bulk of its ethylene requirements next year although the company is looking to source the raw material domestically as well, the source said, without providing details.
