Rotterdam, the Netherlands - LyondellBasell Industries will concentrate its distribution activities in the UK on Brenntag UK and Ireland, which becomes the official distributor of the company's propylene oxide (PO) derivative product range in the UK, LyondellBasell said 15 June.
"Our company has had a long-standing and fruitful relationship with Brenntag throughout Europe," said Simon Goswell, LyondellBasell's vice president of Chemical Sales in Europe. "Through this agreement, we achieve greater economies of scale and reduce supply chain complexity for our customers by offering a single channel for the company's PO derivatives in the UK," he added.
PO is a commodity chemical used in the manufacture of polyurethanes and as a building block in the production of intermediate products. PO derivative products include, among others, butanediol, propylene glycol and solvents. (RD)
