PVC makers'' worries loom
   by Liu Fangbin

The sound PVC production and sales situation led by the anti-dumping campaign is igniting a new wave of investment in capacity expansion.

Based on the 2002 import statistics, the PVC anti-dumping move is expected to cause a decline in imports by around 500,000t/a. It is estimated that domestic PVC capacity will outnumber 8mt by 2005, accounting for one-third of the global new capacity.

The carbide process is largely applied in the domestic PVC production, which makes up 53.4% of the total capacity, and the percentage is still expanding.

China's carbide-based PVC remains competitive: Tangshan Sanyou

China's carbide-based polyvinyl chloride remained competitive compared with ethylene-based PVC despite rising coal and power costs, said Antares Wang Gang, General Manager of Tangshan Sanyou International Industry, Thursday. 唐山三友化工

In 2006, the production cost of carbide-based PVC was estimated at Yuan 5,063/mt, while for ethylene-based PVC it was Yuan 7,487/mt. Supplies of coal, a feedstock for carbide-based PVC, were sufficient but it was difficult to secure ethylene due to logistics, Wang Gang said.

As of March 2007, production cost of carbide-based PVC had risen to Yuan 5,500/mt with sales prices around Yuan 6,600/mt, meanwhile the production cost of ethylene-based PVC had fallen to Yuan 6,400/mt, compared with selling price of Yuan 7,000/mt. In addition to be cheaper, carbide-based PVC was much simpler to produce than ethylene-based PVC, he said.

Cangzhou Chemical has 60,000 t/a carbide process and 230,000 t/a EDC process PVC with total capacity of 290,000 t/a.  
In 2006, the company stoped production of 230,000 t/a EDC process PVC unit as the shortage of capitals, which is caused by the launch of a 400,000 t/a PVC project.  
For the financing of 400,000 t/a PVC project, Cangzhou Chemical made the inter-credit with other two listed companies without the information disclosure between 2004 to 2006. This move was punished by Shanghai Securities Exchange.  
The arrest of two senior managers is also related to the inter-credit issue. Cangzhou Chemical has exit from the 400,000 PVC project.

金融債権者相互間での受け入れ担保の調整(譲り合い)や回収金の分配といった事項を債権者間契約(inter-credit agreement) として、債権者に債務者を加えた当事者間で合意し、新規融資を優遇する手法

1) Is Mitsui & Co. still shareholder of Cangjing Chemical Industry ?
    If so, there might not be any financial problems.
    Do you know when and why Mitsui retired from this JV ?

In Jul., 2000, Cangzhou Chemical and Mitsui made an agreement that change the profits distribution to 90:10 from the orginal 75:25. But there is not any information shows Mitsui has exit from the jv.  Finalical data shows the PVC sector was losed in 2005 and 2006. Financial problem is possibe as Cangzhou Chemical faced billions capital shortage and Cangjing is just a separated jv company.  

2) Was 60,000 t/a carbide process plant originally owned by Cangzhou Chemical Industry, being separated from JV ?  

 The carbide process plant is separeted from jv.
3) What was the punishment by Shanghai Securities Exchange ?
    Did they prohibit  inter-credit transaction ?

  Inter-credit Guarantee without information disclosure is prohibited.  

4) I am not familiar with inter-credit transaction,
    Is it such a serious crime if it was done without disclosure, so that two managers were arrested?

The company made Inter-credit Guarantee without information disclosure, and one of the partner companies has went to bankruptcy. So, Cangzhou Chemical has to be going into bankruptcy as the break-off of capital chain.

5) I understand that punishment by Exchange lead to abolishment of new plan.
    But why did it lead to operation stop of 230,000t/a plant ?

 High price of feedstock and shortage of capitals.

Cangzhou Chemicals Industry (Group) is holding discussions with potential investors for its VCM-PVC project in Cangzhou, Hebei, China, a company source said.

However, the talks have not progressed much because of the outbreak of Sars (severe acute respiratory syndrome).

ACN understands that Mitsui & Co is one of the potential investors.

Mitsui already produces 233 000 tonne/year of VCM and 240000 tonne/year of PVC through Cangjing Chemical Industry Co, a joint venture with Cangzhou Chemicals.

Mitsui owns 25% of the joint venture, and Cangzhou the rest.

The proposed plant would produce 400 000 tonne/ year each of VCM and PVC based on imported feedstocks (ACN 25 Feb 2002, p20). Both units are likely to use EVC's technology.

A source close to the project said it would start up in a single phase, instead of two as earlier understood, possibly in H2 2005.

Cangzhou Chemicals plans to form a new firm to run the project, which has not been approved by the government yet.
