LONDON (ICIS news)--Vinnolit's 281,000 tonne/year caustic soda facility at Knapsack, Germany, is back on stream after a planned maintenance outage, a source at the key chlor-alkali producer said on Friday.
“The facility is back up and running and we aim to move up to full production by the end of the week,” the source added.
It was not known whether an existing force majeure, which had been in place on production at the site since late November, had been lifted.
