ABSTRACT
The article presents a history of the chemical industry in 1987 and 1997. In 1987, two major new polypropylene projects (PP) were planned in Europe. Hoechst, Europe's second largest PP producer, is to build a plant in France by mid-1988, possibly in cooperation with Alcudia of Spain, while Shell, which holds the world's number 2 spot in PP production, is believed to be close to finalizing plans to build a new plant in West Germany.
