LONDON (ICIS)--Perstorp has lifted force majeure declarations at its chlor-alkali and toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) facilities at Pont-de-Claix in ?xml:namespace>
The units were restarted over the weekend of 18-19 February, but the force majeure on both products at the site remained in place until 2 March. The source said that material remained tight and strict allocation would continue until further notice.
On 4 February, the chlor-alkali unit was unexpectedly shut down because of strike action and the downstream TDI facility was affected as a result. This led to the force majeure declaration for both products.
Perstorp’s nameplate capacity at the site is 126,000 tonnes/year for TDI and 170,000 tonnes/year for chlorine, according to the company.
