Two Chinese producers shut PE plants in China
The HDPE plant has a production capacity of 250,000 tons/year while the company also has a 200,000 tons/year LDPE plant at the same site.
Meanwhile, China’s Zhongyuan Petrochemical, a joint venture between Sinopec Group and the Henan provincial government, unexpectedly shut its 260,000 tons/year LLDPE unit on April 17. The reason behind the outage and the expected restart date of the unit are unknown.
