MOSCOW (MRC) -- Zhejiang Petrochemical Co Ltd (ZPC) has started up its No. 2 cracker in Zhoushan, China, which is part of the company's phase 2 petrochemical project in the cournty, reported S&P Global.

Thus, the cracker with an annual capacity of 1.4 million tons/year of ethylene and 700,000 tons/year of propylene began trial runs last week.

The commercial production at this facility is expected in the coming weeks.

As reported earlier, ZPC started operations at its No. 1 cracker in the first half of November 2019, whereas the commercial procution at this cracker was received in late December 2019.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,220,640 tonnes in 2020, up by 2% year on year. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased. At the same time, polypropylene (PP) shipments to the Russian market reached 1 240,000 tonnes in 2020 (calculated using the formula: production, minus exports, plus imports, excluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.
