LONDON (ICIS)--Production at Dow’s flexible polyols plant in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, has been hindered by technical difficulties and severely reduced the company’s product availability, market sources said on Wednesday.

As a result, Dow has extremely low availability for January business and this could continue into February, a market source added.

It is unclear if this will have an effect on prices as early indications suggest a rollover in January from December when prices were €1,760-1,830/tonne FD (free delivered) NWE (northwest Europe).

The company was unable to confirm this at the time of writing.
