SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Daqing Petrochemical restarted its high density polyethylene (HDPE) line 1 at Heilongjiang province on Tuesday after more than a week of shutdown caused by shortage of feedstock ethylene, a source close to company said.

The 80,000 tonne/year line was shut down on 28 October, while production at the company’s two other HDPE lines at the site was not disrupted, the source said.

Lines 1 and 2 are producing HDPE yarns, while Line 3 is producing chlorinated polyethylene (CPE), the source said.
