Trinseo marked the opening of its new pilot plant and solution-styrene-butadiene rubber (S-SBR) capacity expansion at Schkopau, Germany. The production expansion adds additional 50 KT of S-SBR capacity to the site and increases the company’s global S-SBR production by 33 %.

Horgen/Switzerland — The company’s decision to open the new facility was made in response to the growth in global demand for S-SBR and by the need for faster innovation cycles in the performance tire market. The new pilot plant will design next generation material and deliver sufficient quantities of new S-SBR formulations as required for real-life tire-testing, the manufacturer announced, adding that the pilot plant’s ability to evaluate both process and product parameters would meet the tire manufacturers’ need for reducing product validation time.

Most of company’s production goes into the tire industry. According to Hayati Yarkadas, Trinseo Senior Vice President and Business President, the plant will allow the manufacturer to react faster to customer demands and enable them to become technological leaders. He added that the new pilot plant and capacity expansion was consistent with their goal of increasing EBITDA by $ 100 million in their Latex Binders, Synthetic Rubber, and Performance Plastics segments from 2016 to 2019 businesses.
