Explosion takes place at Petkim PVC facility22 Jun 2022 / ChemCourier. PVC Market Weekly / company news

According to the official press release, there was an explosion at Petkim Petrokimya’s PVC facility in Aliaga, Turkey, which is located about 50 km north of Izmir, on the evening of 19 June 2022. The accident happened at a PVC production reactor, without any significant damage done. The company has reported that no one has been injured in the explosion and rescue forces have quickly got the situation under control.

According to market players, Petkim has temporarily stopped making PVC, but there was no confirmation from company representatives. PVC converters expect the producer to raise its prices after this accident. Petkim has mostly been exporting the resin to Europe lately as its polymer has been too expensive for domestic buyers.
