May 5, 2016 Leading the world by example, Europe recycled over 500000 tonnes of PVC in 2015 according to VinylPlus, which revealed its figures at its fourth Vinyl progress globally by reducing its environmental impact in areas such as chlor-alkaline production, energy and mercury use and VCM production.
This document focuses on the main products of the European polymer industry both in production figures and in environmental impact, mainly produced in dedicated installations for the production of one specific polymer. The list of products covered is not conclusive but includes polyolefins, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride,
While this method was widely used during the 1930s and 1940s in the West, it has since been superseded by more economical processes based on ethylene in the United States and Europe. It remains the main production method in China. Vinyl chloride is produced on a substantial scale—approximately 31.1 million tons

Jan 3, 2017 LONDON (ICIS)--The overall outlook for European polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in 2017 is for stable to slightly increasing demand and steady supply conditions. In order to maintain the required level of EDC/VCM production to continue PVC production at the same rate, European producers may increase
