Ineos Styrolution invests in ASA capacity in the Americas
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 the existing Ineos Styrolution Altamira plant in Mexico.
Increasing ABS production for growth market
A contract for engineering, procurement, and construction has been awarded to Worley Parsons, a global provider for the chemical industry. “I am looking forward to offering our customers additional ASA capacity allowing for more flexible production of specialty grades per their growing demand in the Americas. In addition, we will be able to produce more ABS in our existing plant in Mexico also serving the growing ABS market,” explains Alexander Glueck, President Americas.
