Celanese declares force majeure on VAM supply from its plant in Nanjing

September 28/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Celanese Corporation, a global chemical and specialty materials company, has announced a force majeure (FM) in China for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) shipments from its plant Nanjing, China, as per the company's press release.

Besides, the FM also includes other products supply from this site, as follows: acetic anhydride, vinyl acetate emulsions and redispersible powders.

Celanese has temporarily shut down its acetic anhydride and VAM production in Nanjing to comply with recent requirements of government departments in order to achieve dual energy consumption targets in the Jiangsu Province in 2021.

Thus, its VAM plan with the capacity of 300,000 mt/year was shut on 17 September, 2021, and its is expected to resume operations in late September.

Meanwhile, Celanese continues to operate its acetic acid production unit in Nanjing.

As MRC reported earlier, in H2 February, 2021, Celanese declared force majeure on its products in the Americas and EMEA region due to the severe winter weather that has heavily curtailed US petrochemicals and refinery production and operations on the US Gulf Coast.

According to MRC's DataScope report, June EVA imports to Russia fell by 18,32% year on year to 2,400 tonnes from 2,940 tonnes a year earlier, and overall imports of this grade of ethylene copolymer into the Russian Federation rose in January-June 2021 by 26,19% year on year to 22,020 tonnes (17,450 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020).

Celanese Corporation is a global technology leader in the production of differentiated chemistry solutions and specialty materials used in most major industries and consumer applications. Based in Dallas, Celanese employs approximately 7,700 employees worldwide and had 2020 net sales of USD5.7 billion.
