Another plant is to close at the beleaguered Wilton, Teesside, chemical site, according to ICIS news. I’m researching an article on chemical sites and clusters in the downturn, and have been focussing on Wilton.
It has suffered recent closures of Dow’s ethylene oxide plant as well as Invista’s adipic acid plant. Sabic closed its aromatics unit at the end of 2008.
Would be interested to hear anyone’s views on the future of this site.
