ABSTRACT
the article presents information on the petrochemical industry in the U.S. and Europe. US ethylene glycol producers are still pushing for 5-6 cent/lb price hikes that were due to take effect recently. Methylene chloride prices in Europe's export spot market have risen because of strong demand and tight supply. European polyethylene terephthalate (PET) contracts rose in August 2009 and could climb again in September 2009.
