Odfjell Terminals Houston (OTH) has been selected to provide the bulk liquid terminal services for the acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) plant feed products at INEOS Styrolution's new plant.
INEOS Styrolution® is a global supplier of styrenics. The company currently employs some 3500 employees at 20 production sites, with 24 sales offices and six R&D centres located in 10 countries. They are a major company in terms of polystyrene and styrenics specialities production and styrene monomer production with over US$5.4 billion in annual revenues.
In March 2017 INEOS Styrolution announced plans to increase production capacity of ASA and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) in the Americas. This includes construction of a new 100 000 tpy capacity ASA plant at its Bayport Texas plant site. This will be the first new plant to be constructed by Styrolution since its founding in 2011, having acquired its production facilities through acquisitions of existing plant sites. The facility will be constructed within the company’s Bayport site which currently houses the world’s largest styrene monomer plant. The new ASA plant is expected to be operational in 2021.
OTH has been selected to provide the bulk liquid terminal services for the ASA plant feed products, butyl acrylate and acrylonitrile. This includes the receipt, storage and pipeline transfer of these feed products from OTH to the ASA plant.
The ASA plant site will include packaging and warehousing for the finished pelletised products for final distribution to their customers.
Bill Law, Senior Manager Sales and Business Development, Odfjell Terminals Houston, commented: “OTH is extremely honoured to partner with INEOS Styrolution on its new Bayport ASA plant. We look forward to supporting this new plant and possibly other INEOS efforts for many years to come.”
