LONDON, September 23, 2010 - ICIS pricing, the leading price reporting service for the global chemical
industry, has added a weekly Africa Caustic Soda report to its portfolio of
trusted price assessments covering the caustic soda markets in Asia Pacific,
China, Europe, Latin America and the US.

Africa is a major caustic soda market with strong growth opportunities.
It is home to leading international paper producers and metal mining
industries, with planned world-scale alumina capacities that will increase
future demand for caustic soda.

The new ICIS pricing weekly Africa Caustic Soda report covers solid
caustic soda spot prices in South Africa (CFR Durban) and East Africa (CFR
Kenya), liquid caustic soda spot prices in North Africa (FOB North Africa)
and South Africa (CFR Durban) as well as extensive coverage of caustic soda
market activities in Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern Africa.

The report will bring transparency to the continent's caustic soda
market. It helps market players understand the complexities of the market as
well as giving them the market intelligence they need to make solid
commercial decisions.

ICIS publishes trusted pricing information and its existing caustic soda
price reports are widely used as benchmarks by the market. ICIS pricing
reports provide market intelligence and analysis of the factors driving the
chemical industry, and are used to underpin commercial contracts and to
support key business decisions.
