SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Nantong Xingchen Synthetic Material Co (Bluestar Group) has delayed the shutdown of its 90,000 tonne/year bisphenol A (BPA) plant in Jiangsu to mid-August, a company source said on Friday.

The company had planned to shut the plant for a turnaround in early August, but has decided to delay the shutdown to complete contract obligations and to stock up on inventory for its downstream epoxy resin plant, the source added.

The maintenance is expected to last around a month, according to the source.
