LYON, FRANCE: Solvay Polyamide & Intermediates has decided to temporarily stop one of its three production lines on Belle-Etoile industrial platform in Saint-Fons, France. Belle-Etoile facility is dedicated to the manufacturing of the Company Nylon 6.6 polymer product range Stabamid. This decision will be maintained until better economic conditions are recovered. “Worldwide Nylon market is encountering a series of structural and short-term events with lasting overcapacities, escalating raw materials and energy costs and fierce competition,” explained Yannick Adnot, Vice President for Europe, Solvay.
