Fujian Meide Petrochemical delays start-up of its new PDH unit in Fujian to September

July 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- China's Fujian Meide Petrochemical, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Flexible Packing Group,
is planning to start up its newly-built propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Jiangyin, Fujian province, around September this year, reported S&P Global with reference to a company source.

The new PDH with the capacity of 660,000 mt/year was originally scheduled to start up in the first half of February, 2020, then - in the second half of February. High cost of feedstock propane was the cause of the delay.

Afterwards, the company postponed the start until June and then - July, 2020.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market was 457,930 tonnes in January-May 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Deliveris of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.
