LONDON (ICIS)--INEOS Oxide has lifted its declaration of force majeure on supplies of ethylene oxide (EO), monoethylene glycol (MEG), ethanolamines and glycol ethers from its facility at Lavera, France, a company source said on Thursday.
The company declared force majeure in mid-October because of labour strikes in France, which had temporarily affected production at the Lavera site.
The Lavera site's nameplate capacities for the products are 220,000 tonnes/year for EO, 15,000 tonnes/year for MEG and 50,000 tonnes/year for ethanolamines, according to the ICIS plants and projects database.
The site's butyl acetate capacity is 100,000 tonnes/year, with feedstock produced at Lavera and the manuafacture of the end-product carried out at Antwerp, Belgium.
Information on nameplate capacities for oxo-alcohols and glycol ethers were not available.
