(PlastEurope) -- In order to meet the EUs preconditions for the creation of Styrolution (Ludwigshafen / Germany) the 50:50 styrene joint venture between BASF (Ludwigshafen / Germany) and Ineos (Lausanne / Switzerland) the latter on 1 October 2011 awarded its ABS plant in Tarragona / Spain to its Elix Polymers (Tarragona / Spain) subsidiary, which it subsequently carved out.

When the competition authorities had approved the merger of the two groups styrene activities earlier this year see of 05.10.2011 they had set the condition that the Tarragon plant be divested in order to restore competition in the European market for natural and pre-coloured ABS products.
