January 30 In a letter to customers, Riande Basel said that due to the failure of third-party suppliers to supply steam to the Bebop ethylene oxide plant in Texas, the company announced that the ethylene oxide / ethylene glycol Alcohol (EO / EG) devices experience force majeure.
The ethylene glycol products affected include monoethylene glycol (MEG), diethylene glycol (DEG) and triethylene glycol (TEG).
This is due to a breakdown of the dedicated pipe from supplier to Bebop.
As a result, EO and EG production are affected. Although the impact is not yet clear, the company is working with steam suppliers to confirm the impact on plant production.
The Bebop unit has 380,000 tons / year EO and 265,000 tons / year EG capacity.
Major US ethylene glycol producers include Eastman Chemical, Huntsman, Indora Ventures, Leander Basel, SAARC, Shell Chemicals and MEGlobal.
