November 05/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Celanese Corporation, a global chemical and specialty materials company, has undertaken an unplanned shutdown at its Vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) unit in Singapore, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Singapore informed that the company has halted operations at the plant owing to shortage of feedstock on October 23, 2019. The exact duration of the shutdown could not be ascertained.

Located in Jurong Island, Singapore, the plant has a production capacity of 210,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed earlier, Celanese Corporation experienced an emergency incident at approximately 12:00 noon Central time on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Celanese Clear Lake facility in Pasadena, Texas. On-site emergency personnel extinguished the fire quickly, and appropriate regulatory and first responder agencies were notified and mobilized at the scene to support the incident. All Celanese, site partner and contractor employees are accounted for and no injuries were reported. No shelter in place was issued, and the emergency was cleared at 4:30 p.m. local time.

According to MRC's DataScope report, September EVA imports to Russia fell by 22,7% year on year to 3,420 tonnes from 4,430 tonnes in September 2018, and overall imports of this grade of ethylene copolymer into the Russian Federation decreased in January-September 2019 by 18,2% year on year to 29,190 tonnes (35,690 tonnes in the first nine months of 2018).
