China to almost double ethylene capacity by 2010

China's ethylene output by the year 2010 will be expanded to 17.5 mln tpa. This denotes a capacity addition of almost 8 mln ton by the end of the decade. However, with demand estimated to rise to 26.4 mln tons the capacity increase will not be enough to meet domestic demand for ethylene and related products.
