SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical has shut down its 170,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Guangdong province in the evening of 26 December for maintenance because of feedstock shortage, a company source said on 27 December.

The maintenance will last for four days, the source said.

The shutdown is brief and is not expected to have much impact on supply in the domestic market, industry players said.

The company’s other 300,000 tonne/year PP unit at the same site is currently producing PP yarn.
