August 02/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical, a subsidiary of one of the world's largest energy and chemical companies - Sinopec, plans to shut down four linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plants in Tianjin in northeast China for scheduled repairs on 10 August, 202q, according to CommoPlast.

It is expected that the turnaround at these plants, which can produce 70,000 mt/year (No. 1 plant), 70,000 mt/year (No. 2 plant), 140,000 mt/year (No. 3 plant) and 250,000 mt/year (No. 4 plant) of LLDPE, will last for about 50 days.
