Shaoxing Sanyuan lowers run rates at No.1 PDH unit

February 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shaoxing Sanyuan Petrochemical, has reduced run rates at its No. 1 propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company is currently operating the unit at around 70-75% of production capacity levels.

Located in Zhejiang, China, the No.1 PDH unit has a propylene production capacity of 450,000 mt/year.

As MRC wrote before, Shaoxing Sanyuan Petrochemical took off-stream its PDH unit in late January 2015, owing to technical issues. A restart schedule for the unit could not be determined. Located in Zhejiang province, China, the unit has a propylene capacity of 450,000 mt/year.

We also remind that Chinese PDH plants' average operating rate was estimated at around 76% over February 1-5, 2020, up from an average of 68% in January, 2020.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,260,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 4% year on year. Supply of almost all grades of propylene polymers increased, except for statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers).
