SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Liaoyang Petrochemical, a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina, is running one of its two adipic acid (ADA) lines at 100% after the unit was restarted in early this month, a company source said on Wednesday.

The line at Liaoyang in northeastern China has a 70,000 tonne/year capacity.

“We restarted the line, which was shut down in late June, in early November, and now it is running at full operation,” the source said.

The company’s other ADA line at the site with the same capacity is still down. This line was shut in April this year, with no specific restart date, the source said.
