ABSTRACT
The article reports on the launch of an investigation by the European Commission into state aid granted to chemical firms NGP and Simpe. The funds were used for the restructuring of polymerization assets of NGP under Simpe. The Commission is looking whether the companies contributed 50% of the restructuring costs themselves and whether compensatory measures were taken to offset competition distortion.
