Yangmei Chemical to restart MEG plant in August

June 02/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- China's Yangmei Chemical will only restart its coal-based monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Shenzhou, Hebei province, in August, reported S&P Global.

This plant with the capacity of 220,000 mt/year was shut for maintenance in May, 2020.

As MRC informed earlier, Shandong Yangmei Hengtong Chemical has restarted its methanol-to-olefins (MTO) plant following a maintenance turnaround. The company resumed operations at the plant on May 5, 2020. The plant remained under maintenance for about one month. Located in Shandong province, China, the MTO plant has an ethylene production capacity of 120,000 mt/year and propylene capacity of 180,000 mt/year.

MEG is one of the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

As per MRC's ScanPlast report, March estimated PET consumption in Russia was 65,3700 tonnes, up by 1% year on year. Russia's estimated PET consumption decreased  in January-March 2020 by 3% year on year to 175,170 tonnes.
