LONDON (ICIS)--Bisphenol A (BPA) exports from the EU rose sharply year on year in November 2013, data from statistics agency Eurostat showed on Tuesday.

Just two tonnes of BPA was exported from the EU in November 2012, leading to significant year-on-year percentage increase. EU BPA producers exported 110 tonnes in November 2013.

Imports into the EU in November fell 8.6% year on year, which likely reflects weaker demand in 2013 compared to the previous year.
