Fujian Meide Petrochemical postpones start-up of its new PDH unit in Fujian to H2 February

January 23/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- China's Fujian Meide Petrochemical, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Flexible Packing Group, plans to delay the startup of its newly built PDH plant in Jiangyin, southeastern Fujian province, to the second half of February, reported S&P Global

The new PDH with the capacity of 660,000 mt/year was originally scheduled to start up in the first half of February, 2020.

High cost of feedstock propane was the cause of the delay.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,161,830 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 7% year on year. Deliveries of all grades of propylene polymers increased, with the homopolymer PP segment accounting for the largest increase.
