Zhejiang Petrochemical to shut new ACN plant in China for maintenance

December 08/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Zhejiang Petrochemical Co Ltd plans to shut down its new acrylonitrile (ACN) plant at Zhoushan in eastern Zhejiang province on 10 December for a 18-20 day turnaround, reported S&P Global with reference to a company source.

This plant's production capacity is 260,000 mt/year.

The company started up new ACN plant on 23 June, 2020, and produced on specification material in the week ended 4 July.

As MRC informed earlier, Zhejiang Petrochemical Co Ltd started up its ethylene cracker in late December 2019 and its polyolefin plants in late December 2019-January 2020.

Market sources reported then that one of its polypropylene (PP) plant with capacity of 450,000 tons/year started up by 30 December 2019, followed by another line with same capacity by 15 January 2020.

Meanwhile its 450,000 tons/year of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and 300,000 tons/year of high density polyethylene (HDPE) were launched around similar time with PP plants.

ACN is the main feedstock for the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, ABS shipments to the Russian market virtually remained at the previous month's level, totalling 5,060 tonnes. Overall consumption of material in the country was 37,120 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, down by 6% year on year.
