The article reports that vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) is no different to any other ethylene derivative in Europe. Ethylene has impacted VAM supplies for months, most notably through July 2006's force majeure declaration at BP 250,000 tonnes/ year VAM facility in Hull, UK, after the company had problems sourcing the key feedstock.
