Hengli Petrochemical shuts No.1 PTA in Dalian for maintenance

October 16/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hengli Petrochemical has taken off-stream its No. 1 purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant for a turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the company has halted operations at the plant on October 7, 2019. The plant is likely to remain under maintenance for around two weeks.

Located in Dalian, China, the No. 1 PTA plant has a production capacity of 2.2 million mt/year.

As MRC informed before, in 2018, Hengli Petrochemical restarted operations at its no.1 PTA plant at Dalian on August 14, following a planned maintenance turnaround. The plant was taken off-stream on August 1, 2018.

PTA is used to produce polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is used in the manufacturing of plastic bottles, films, packaging containers, in the textile and food industries.

According to MRC's DataScope report, Chinese bottle grade PET deliveries to Russia increased 34% in the first eight months of 2019 to 95,600 tonnes. China accounted for 90% of the total imports, compared to 85% a year earlier.
August imports of material from China decreased by 41% to 7,600 tonnes from 12,800 tonnes in July. Jiangsu Sanfangxiang, Yisheng, Wankai and Sinopec were the leading Chinese suppliersof material to the Russian market.
