China’s Hubei Yihua shuts PVC plant for inspection after explosion
The plant is expected to restart at the end of March.
An explosion took place at one of the Chinese Hubei Yihua Chemical Industry Co’s PVC and coal plants in Xinjiang, China last week. The sources had reported that the coal production was affected by the explosion while the PVC production was running normally. However, it was not yet known whether the company’s PVC production at the plant would be affected in the coming days.
The plant has a production capacity of 300,000 tons/year of carbide based PVC and 600,000 tons/year of coal while the company’s total production capacity is 1,200,000 tons/year of PVC and 1,800,000 tons/year of coal.
