Polychim resumes PP production in Dunkirk
Polychim declared force majeure on its PP supply from Dunkirk, France, due to some technical difficulties following the restart from a maintenance shutdown in the beginning of November.
Sources did not comment on the date the force majeure will possibly be lifted.
The plant has a production capacity of 230,000 tons/year of PP and it is the only PP plant of the company while it receives its propylene feedstock from Versalis’ neighboring cracker.
