Tagged with: | | | | | |

Styrenics applications provider Ineos Styrolution has broken ground on its new acrylonitrile styrene acrylate plant in Bayport, Texas, US, as part of expansion plans for the Americas.

The new acrylonitrile styrene acrylate plant (ASA plant) with a production capacity of 100,000 ton per annum is expected to establish the company as the only global producer with ASA production capacity in all regions.

Reflecting the company’s commitment to the Triple Shift growth strategy, the new thermoplastic factory is also expected to unleash the additional capacity of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene polymers (ABS) at the existing INEOS Styrolution Altamira facility in Mexico.

“ASA performs greatly in exterior automotive and construction applications.”

Ineos Styrolution has awarded a contract to WorleyParsons, a provider for the chemical industry, for engineering, procurement, and construction services.

Commenting on manufacturing and project excellence at Styrolution, Cathy Culpepper – Ineos Styrolution vice president manufacturing Americas, said: “Operating in a safe, environmentally and socially responsible manner is part of INEOS Styrolution’s mission.”
