LONDON (ICIS)--Germany-based Vestolit's upstream vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and downstream polyvinyl chloride (PVC) operations at Marl are being ramped up,  as recent upstream technical constraints are in the final stages of being resolved, a PVC company source said on Thursday.

“We expect the situation to be normalised by the end of week,” the company source said.

Last week, technical problems affecting the VCM facility at Marl had also limited downstream PVC output at the same site.

The nameplate capacity for both PVC and VCM at the Marl site are 400,000 tonnes/year each, according to the company source.
