MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hengli Petrochemical has restarted operations at its no.1 purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant at Dalian, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the plant was brought on-stream on August 14, 2018 following a planned maintenance turnaround. The plant was taken off-stream on August 1, 2018. Currently, the plant is operating at 80-85% production capacity rates.

Located at Dalian in China, the plant has a production capacity of 2.2 mmt/year.

As MRC reported previously, in May 2018, INVISTAs technology and licensing group, INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT), and Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Co.,Ltd. (Hengli) reached an agreement to license INVISTAs latest purified terephthalic acid (PTA) process technology for Henglis fourth PTA line. Henglis first three PTA lines, the first of which began operation in 2012, also utilize INVISTAs technology and have a combined capacity of 6.6 million metric tonnes per year. The fourth line will have a design capacity of 2.5 million metric tonnes per year and will be installed at Changxing Island, Liaoning Province of China.
