Two units at Pont-de-Claix Site (France) brought on stream after shutdown

February 27/2012

(chemmonitor) -- The Perstorp-headquartered (Sweden) company Perstorp restarted its toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) and chlor-alkali plants at Pont-de-Claix site (France) last week at the weekends. The producer is increasing the manufacturing rates of the facilities.

Perstorps chlor-alkali plant was brought off stream in early February on the back of the strike, what influenced the TDI unit.

A force majeure declaration, which came into effect in early February for both TDI and chloralkali products at the site, is expected to remain in place until the end of the month, with a strict allocation likely to be implemented in March.

On 4 February, Perstorp was forced to stop production at its chlor-alkali unit because of the strike and this affected its downstream TDI facility. This resulted in force majeure declarations for both products.

Perstorps nameplate capacity at the site is 126,000 tonnes/year for TDI and 170,000 tonnes/year for chlorine, according to a company source.
