Dalian Fujia Petrochemical is operating paraxylene plant normally

August 16/2011

(Reuters) -- China's privately-run Dalian Fujia Petrochemical Co Ltd is operating its 700 KTa paraxylene plant normally despite a local government order on Sunday to close the plant due to a toxic spill scare, an industry source said on Monday.

Authorities in Dalian in northeastern Liaoning province ordered the Fujia plant to be shut down immediately on Sunday after thousands of local residents demonstrated, demanding the relocation of the factory at the centre of a toxic spill scare.

The plant, one of the country's leading importers of naphtha, is carrying on normal shipments of naphtha from regular suppliers such as Iran and Papua New Guinea, according to the source.

The Fujia plant, jointly owned by local government-backed Dalian Chemical Group and private real estate company Fujia Group, imports 100-120 KT of heavy naphtha a month, according to two trading sources.
