The article reports on an increase in caustic soda prices in Europe. Strong demand, rising feedstock costs and stretched stocks are likely to support the renewed price push. High prices and freight rates make imports from the U.S. unlikely, although some are now looking at their viability. Reduced offtake for ethylene dichloride, vinyl chloride monomer and polyvinyl chloride seems certain to impact production of chlorine and co-product caustic soda.
