ABSTRACT
The article reports on the impact of planned maintenance shutdowns at European expandable polystyrene (EPS) plants on the market. Nova Innovene's Ribecourt, France, EPS unit underwent a maintenance shutdown for about two weeks in the second half of December 2006. European EPS supply has been tight for several months, on the back of exceptionally strong demand. Meanwhile, German tax incentives have led to very strong offtake of EPS for insulation.
