SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s BASF-YPC Co Ltd expects to restart its 200,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE)/ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) swing line in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on by the end of this week, sources close to the company said.
The plant, which was shut on 4 January because of shortage of feedstock ethylene, will resume production in tandem with the restart of its upstream cracker, the sources said.
BASF-YPC also operates a 200,000 tonne/year dedicated LDPE line at the same site that was also shut on 4 January. This unit is also scheduled to restart this week, the sources said.
