With this project, Ineos Styrolution aims at expanding its ASA and ABS production capacity in North America. It will also strengthen the company’s position as the only global producer with ASA production capacity in the Americas.
Frankfurt/Germany – Ineos Styrolution has recently announced the final investment decision to construct a new 100 kilo tonne capacity ASA plant at its site in Bayport, Texas. The new ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate polymer) facility strengthens the Ineos Styrolution position as the only global producer with ASA production capacity in all regions.
Upon the start-up, scheduled for 2021, the new facility will unleash additional capacity of ABS polymers at Ineos’ existing Altamira plant in Mexico. A contract for engineering, procurement, and construction has been awarded to Worley Parsons, a leading global provider for the chemical industry. Ineos Styrolution is adopting the ‘Triple Shift’ growth strategy as its advisor.
