SP Chemicals to restart VCM plant in China

September 25/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SP Chemicals is likely to restart a vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant following maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the plant is likely to be restarted in end-September 2013. It was shut on September 3, 2013.

Located in Jiangsu, China, the plant has a production capacity of 200,000 mt/year.

We remind that, as MRC wrote previously, Formosa Plastics shut down its vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant on September 16, 2013. It is likely to remain off-stream for around one month. Located in Mailiao, Taiwan, the plant has a production capacity of 800,000 mt/year.

SP Chemicals, a Singapore-based company is one of the largest ion-membrane chlor-alkali producer and aniline producer in China. The company's products include: aniline, caustic soda, chlorine, chlorobenzene, nitrochlorobenzene, nitrobenzene, vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). SP Chemicals plans to invest approximately RMB1.1 billion in facilities for the production of styrene monomer, an intermediate raw chemical used in making polystyrene plastics, protective coatings, polyesters and resins.
