Dow, Midland, MI, announced that it has ended force majeure for vinyl acetate monomer at the Texas City, TX, plant, which is owned by Union Carbide, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow. As restart of production and inventory restoration has proceeded according to plan, Dow has increased its allocation of VAM to 100% of annual contractual volumes. The Texas City plant was hit by a storm on May 8, resulting in significant damage to critical equipment. This caused an involuntary and continued shutdown of the VAM plant at the site.
