(BASF) -- BASF SE and INEOS AG have received approvals from all relevant antitrust authorities for the formation of the joint venture Styrolution. Closing is effective as of October 1, 2011. From this date on Styrolution operates independently. 

BASF and INEOS have combined their global business activities in styrene monomers (SM), polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), styrene-butadiene block copolymers (SBC) and other styrene-based copolymers (SAN, AMSAN, ASA, MABS) as well as copolymer blends into the new joint venture, Styrolution.
