SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s  Hongtai Chemical has restarted its 250,000 tonne/year polyester unit on 9 July at Yancheng, Jiangsu, a company source said on Thursday.

The unit, which mainly produces polyester filament yarn (PFY), was shut down on 25 June for regular maintenance, according to the source.

The company will only run eight of the 12 lines in the unit initially, with the remaining four to be restarted depending on the demand conditions, the source said.

This unit is expected to produce on-spec product next week, the source added.
