LONDON (ICIS)--Ethylene exports from the EU to the rest of the world were up by a massive 212% in November compared with the same period in 2012, according to Eurostat data released on Tuesday.

Exports totalled 15,280 tonnes in November 2013 compared with 4,897 tonnes the year before. The rise in exports was attributed to weaker than expected derivative demand in the run-up to the year-end.
