Sanfanxiang restarted PTA plant in China

April 18/2014

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jiangsu Sanfangxiang has restarted its purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant following maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the plant restarted over the weekend. It was shut in late March 2014.

Located in eastern Jiangsu province of China, the plant has a production capacity of 1.2 million mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, BP Zhuhai Chemical has deferred the startup of its new purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant. The commissioning of the plant has been postponed to 2015. It was earlier scheduled to start in Q4, 2014. The reason for the delayed startup has been attributed to weak margins for PTA. To be located in Zhuhai, southern Guangdong province of China, the plant will have a production capacity of 1.5 million mt/year. 

We remind that China based company Xianglu Petrochemical had started up its new purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in late November 2013. Located in Xiamen, China, the plant has a production capacity of 1.5 million mt/year.
