October 28/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Zhong An United Coal Chemical Co Ltd has unexpectedly shut its polypropylene (PP) plant on 23 October due to technical glitches at its polymerization section, reported CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

Based in Anhui, China, the PP plant has a production capacity of 350,000 tons/year.

It is expected to remain off-stream for about few days, while the restart date could not be ascertained. There are some speculations rumors from the market mentioning the shutdown could reach as long as 6 months, however, after verification by CommoPlast, the rumors appeared to be untrue.

Located at Huainan, Anhui province, China, the PP unit has a production capacity of 145,000 mt/year in 2019 (the designed capacity - 350,000 mt/year).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 909,260 tonnes in January-August 2019, up by 10% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.
