LONDON (ICIS)--Shell Chemicals will lift the force majeure (FM) on polyols from its Pernis site, in the Netherlands, with effect from 1 September due to normalised production and sufficient stock levels, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.
The FM came into effect on a number of the polyol grades manufactured at the Pernis site in the second half of June due to production restrictions.
At the time, the company cited insufficient ethylene oxide (EO) feedstock supply and technical issues.
The overall nameplate capacity for polyether polyols at Pernis is rated at 300,000 tonnes/year, as previously stated by the company spokesperson.
