LONDON (ICIS news)--Dow’s 30,000 tonne/year Tyrol styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) train at Dow’s Terneuzen, Netherlands, plant shut down on 7 March due to quality problems, sources close to the company said on Wednesday.

Dow could not be reached for confirmation.

The shutdown was expected to last for approximately two weeks, and although buyers were concerned about the supply situation, the actual effect for customers was still to be evaluated. But inventories at Dow were low, the sources said.

Dow has not yet declared force majeure.
