Ineos Styrolution to Build World-Scale Styrene Monomer Plant
On the U.S. Gulf Coast
Ineos Styrolution, Frankfurt/Main, Germany, will commission an engineering study to build a world-scale styrene monomer (SM) plant in the US Gulf Coast. According to the company, the new SM plant will use best-in-class technology and benefit from access to low cost feedstock and energy from shale gas as well as an excellent infrastructure. A specific location is yet to be defined.
Steve Harrington, President Global Styrene Monomer and Asia-Pacific, comments: “This new plant will complement our existing SM production facilities and provide a sustained competitive advantage to enable us to supply the global market.” According to Kevin McQuade, CEO at Ineos Styrolution, the plan supports the company's ‘Triple Shift’ growth strategy and will maintain its leading position as a global styrenics supplier.
