INEOS EPS plant in Marl to continue operations

March 23/2012

(plasteurope) -- Even though the sites styrene and polystyrene plants are due to be closed by the end of the year.  Ineos (Rolle / Switzerland) plans to continue operating the remaining lines in Marl / Germany.

A company spokeswoman told that the Rolle-based group would hold on to its 260,000 t/y cumene plant as well as its 110,000 t/y EPS line at the site. To date, the latter had been fed with styrene produced in Marl, a job which in future will probably be assumed by joint venture partner BASF (Ludwigshafen / Germany) or Shell Chemicals (London / UK).

It also remains unclear whether Ineos Styrenics four European EPS plants will be consolidated. Ineos did not comment on a relevant query. However, sources close to the company said the Marl EPS line will likely continue operations for now. Aside from Marl, Ineos also runs EPS production facilities in Breda / The Netherlands as well as Ribecourt and Wingles both in France.
