Celanese announces closure of PA66 units. Celanese, in its third-quarter 2023 earnings report, announced the shutdown of its PA66 unit in Uentrop, Germany.

The PA66 unit reportedly has a capacity of around 120,000 metric tonnes per year.

The company has decided to close the unit due to the high costs of polymerization, influenced by regional energy and material prices.

Celanese plans to halt operations at the PA66 unit by January 1, 2024.

Additionally, the press release mentions that Celanese has ceased production at Engineered Materials facilities in Campo Bom, Brazil; Berazategui, Argentina; and Wehr, Germany.
