Force majeure for LyondellBasell's PP from Carrington

March 18/2010

March 18 (plasteurope) -- In an announcement limited to individual customers for now, LyondellBasell  has declared force majeure for homopolymeric PP from its plant in Carrington / UK. A group spokesperson told the newsletter Plastics Information Europe that the site, with reported capacity of 210,000 t/y, had to be idled due to a shortage in feedstocks, adding that a key supplier currently was unable to deliver sufficient propylene.

Since several other European plants operated by LyondellBasell are also facing bottlenecks due to maintenance works and the tight C3 situation and because no other materials are available, the group said it had no choice but to ration supplies from Carringtons already depleted inventory. It is unclear how long FM will remain in place.
