Sanfangxiang to shut PTA plant in China

April 25/2014

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jiangsu Sanfangxiang is likely to shut a purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant, reported Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the plant is likely to be shut in September 2014. It is likely to remain off-stream for around one month.

Located in Jiangyin, Jiangsu, China, the plant has a production capacity of 1.5 million mt/year.

As MRC informed before, Jiangsu Sanfangxiang restarted its PTA plant in mid-April, following maintenance turnaround. 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.

We remind that BP Zhuhai Chemical has deferred the startup of its new 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.
