Both units are expected to be down for 10-12 days this month but it isn'tyet clear when they will go down, one source said Friday.

Evonik wasn't immediately available for comment on the matter.

The Marl unit has a butadiene capacity of around 220,000 mt/year and theAntwerp unit increased butadiene capacity by 100,000 mt in 2015.

The outages comes after European butadiene FOB Rotterdam prices hit amore than three-and-a-half year high on Friday of $1,828/mt, the highest levelsince April 25, 2013. Prices spiked on a surge in Asia pulling in material andtight European availability, sources said.
