Riots in Urumqi to affect Chinese PVC imports

July 26/2009
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Mass riots in Urumqi (China) resulted in cut communication lines and Internet in the region; banks are closed, troops have been brought into the town. Railway service between China and Kazakhstan is operating. However, PVC shipments to Russia are being disrupted due to cut communication. 

Some Russian PVC importers did succeed to get their shipments; though shipments of PVC to the majority of companies have been put off indefinitely.

There are two acetylene-based PVC producers in Urumqi – Xinjiang Tianye and Xinjiang Zhongtai; their overall output capacity is at the level of 760 kt.

 Last year, overall imports of PVC produced by those companies exceeded 145 kt. This year, feedstock of those companies has not been imported.
