SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Hanbang Petrochemical’s 600,000 tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in China’s Jiangsu province is currently shut for about 20 days of regular maintenance, a company source said on Monday.

The plant located in Jianyin City was taken off line on 6 December, the source said.

Hanbang Petrochemical is a joint venture company between China Chengxing Group and Hong Kong Hanbang Petrochemical.

Chengxing owns a downstream 200,000 tonne/year polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle chip plant in Jiangyin that was taken off line in late October, with no firm restart date.

Meanwhile, the company is currently building a 500,000 tonne/year PET bottle chip plant that  is due for start-up in the second quarter of 2014.
