Olin Declares Force Majeure for Chlor Alkali Products & Vinyls

July 11, 2024

Olin declares Force Majeure for its Chlor Alkali Products & Vinyls division and Aromatics shipments due to Hurricane Beryl, according to a press release.

The hurricane’s impact has led to a temporary halt in operations at Olin Corporation’s Freeport, Texas, facility.

The storm caused significant damage, disrupting production and logistics, including access to power and raw materials. Olin’s Freeport facilities are currently undergoing detailed inspections and assessments to evaluate the full extent of the damage.

A coordinated plan is being developed to ensure a safe and orderly return to operations, although the timeline remains uncertain.
