In China, CPL prices were assessed down in the week as supply in the market increased amid a plant restart recently. The average plant run rate in the region was up at 80.6% as compared to 79.5% last week.

Spot liquid good offers in China were down US$50 a ton as compared to last week while solid goods were down US$79 a ton on the week.
