SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Wuhu Ronghui Chemical has delayed the start-up of its new 50,000 tonne/year emulsion polyvinyl chloride (E-PVC) unit at Wuhu in Anhui province, a company source said on Monday.

The company purchased related equipment for the new E-PVC unit, but it had not been fixed at the end of 2013 as planned, the source added.

The start-up plan for the new plant was not immediately available amid weak demand from the end-user market.

Wuhu Ronghui Chemical also has a separate 62,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) unit at the same site, which is running at 90% capacity.
