LONDON (ICIS)--Arkema lifted force majeure on caustic soda at its plant in Fos, southern France, on 14 October, a company source said on Wednesday.
Both declarations followed a strike-related shutdown at LyondellBasell’s refinery and petrochemicals unit at Berre on 27 September, which prevented the distribution of PVC and caustic soda from Arkema’s facilities.
LyondellBasell's strike ended on 9 October and Arkema’s operations have now returned to normal.
