Arkema plans to lift PVC force majeure

May 20/2011

(ICIS) -- Arkema is on schedule to lift its declaration of force majeure on polyvinyl chloride (PVC) supplies from its unit at Lavera, France, while LVM will shut down one PVC line at its unit in Beek, the Netherlands, at the end of June, company sources said on Friday. Arkema plans to resume production at its oxychlorination and vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) unit in Lavera, France, by the end of May, a company source said.

If there are no problems, the company should be in a position to lift its declaration of force majeure on PVC supplies from Lavera at the end of May or early June, the source added.

LVM, part of the Belgium-based Tessenderlo Group, plans to carry out maintenance at its 225 KTa unit in Beek, the Netherlands, which has four lines, a company source said.

One of the lines will be shut down for one week at the end of June, which is unlikely to have any significant impact, the source added.
