According to market sources, Japan’s JX Nippon is planning to shut its No 1 paraxylene (PX) plant at Kashima for maintenance. The maintenance at the No 1 PX plant with 170,000 tons/year capacity is expected to start in March 2017 and last for about two weeks, sources said.

Meanwhile, the company will reportedly shut its No 3 PX plant with a capacity of 350,000 tons/year at Mizushima in late January for fifty days for a planned maintenance.

JX Nippon can produce 3.1 million tons/year of PX in total at its plants in Chita, Kashima, Kawasaki, Mizushima and Oita in Japan and at Ulsan, South Korea.
