Sinopec Mitsui cuts run rates at BPA plant in Shanghai

March 26/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sinopec Mitsui Chemicals, is presently running its Bisphenol A (BPA) plant at curtailed capacity levels, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company cut down run rates at its plant, to around 80-85% of production capacity levels on March 18, 2020. The lower run rates has been attributed to shortage of feedstock.

Located at Shanghai, China, the plant has a production capacity of 120,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, Sinopec Mitsui Chemicals Co undertook a planned shutdown for maintenance at its BPA plant in China on August 16, 2018. The plant remained shut until mid-September 2018. Located in Shanghai, China the plant has a production capacity of 120.000 mt/year.

BPA is the main feedstock for the production of polycarbonate (PC).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall consumption of PC granules (excluding exports from Belarus) totalled 6,700 tonnes in January 2020, up by 43% year on year (4,300 tonnes a year earlier).

Shanghai Sinopec Mitsui Chemicals Co. Ltd. manufactures and distributes chemical products. The company produces and sells bisphenol A and other related chemical products.
