Ineos Styrolution breaks ground for ASA plant in Texas
The development of the new site is part of a bigger expansion plan for the Americas, which includes increased ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) capacity at the Altamira site in Mexico, while transition the ASA production to the new site in Bayport. The location of the new site was selected based upon its easy access to raw materials, being adjacent to the Ineos Styrolution’s styrene monomer plant, low cost utilities and proximity to major customer markets. The new site is expected to be operational by 2021.
