Jiangsu Sailboat resumes production at MTO plant in China

July 30/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical, also known as Jiangsu Shenghong, has restarted its methanol-to-olefins (MTO) plant following a turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that the company resumed operations at the plant on July 27, 2020. The plant was shut owing to technical issues on July 17, 2020.

Located at Lianyugang in Jiangsu province of China, the plant has an ethylene production capacity of 360,000 mt/year and propylene production capacity of 470,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical is only able to restart its two acrylonitrile (ACN0 plants on July 31, followed an unplanned shutdown of these production units on July 16. The company shut down both their two 260,000 mt/yr ACN plants along with its methanol-to-olefin unit at the same time.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's DataScope report, PE imports to Russia dropped in January-June 2020 by 7% year on year to 328,000 tonnes. High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main decrease in imports. At the same time, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.

Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical, part of the Shenghong Holding Group, is a major petrochemical manufacturer in China, including polyethylene (PE) and ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA). The company's production facilities are located in the new Xuwei Industrial Park in Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province.
