LONDON (ICIS news)--Polimeri Europa has now partially restarted its acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) production at its Mantova, Italy, unit, and hoped material will be available for delivery from next week, a company official said on Friday.

An attempt was made to restart production on 26-27 November, but the unit continued to suffer technical problems. Polimeri said it might be able to lift its ABS force majeure by the end of February.

Polimeri was forced to close the ABS unit unexpectedly on 15 October due to a power cut at the Mantova site. The outage only concerned the Italian producer’s ABS train. Production of all other polymers was unaffected.
