China's Sanyuan to start up new PP line at Shaoxing by year end

October 21/2010

(Platts) -- China's Zhejiang Shaoxing Sanyuan Petrochemical plans to start up its new polypropylene line at its plant at Shaoxing, in Zhejiang province, at the end of this year, a company source said Thursday.

Sanyuan currently owns a 240,000 mt/year PP plant at Shaoxing and the new line, which has a production capacity of 300,000 mt/year, would boost its total capacity to 540,000 mt/year.

The new line will produce mainly film grade PP, under the serial codes F280 and 730S, the source added. Sanyuan has yet to fix a date for the startup in December, as it is also dependent on market conditions, the source added.

The company imports all of its propylene feedstock requirements from the spot market, the source said. The company purchases a 1,500 mt propylene spot parcel once every two days, but after the new line is brought on stream, Sanyuan would need to buy a spot cargo every day.
