April 13/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sinopec Changling, part of Sinopec Group, plans to bring on-stream its polypropylene (PP) unit in Yueyang, China on 15 April, 2021, after a scheduled turnaround, according to CommoPlast.

The maintenance works at this plant with a production capacity of 125,000 mt/year of PP began on 22 February, 2021.

As MRC informed earlier, Zhongke Refinery and Petrochemical Complex, also part of Sinopec Group, successfully conducted trial runs at its new 350,000 tons/year PP unit on 9 June, 2020.

Based in Zhenjiang, China, the complex consists of two PP lines with combined production capacity of 550,000 tons/year, a 100,000 tons/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant and a 350,000 tons/year high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 141,870 tonnes in January 2021 versus 123,520 tonnes a year earlier. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
