The article reports that a majority of Europe's ethylene oxide contracts have settled up €100/tonne for October 2006, as shutdowns upstream continue to affect the market. Producers said that high costs and little sign of a slowdown in demand had supported the hike. They do not foresee an improvement in the situation for the rest of the year.
