PS was not produced in November in Ukraine

December 05/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Concern Stirol, the only polystyrene (PS) producer in Ukraine, has not resumed production of styrene polymers after an outage in October, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

A shortage of the main feedstock component - styrene monomer (SM) - was the cause of the plant"s shutdown. SM shipments to the plant were not resumed in sufficient quantities in November and, consequently, PS were not produced.

Since the outage was not scheduled, large inventories of material were not built up at the plant"s warehouse. Therefore, PS stocks at the warehouse have already run out. According to unconfirmed information, the plant might restart operations in mid-December.

PS production in Ukraine fell in January-November by 17% year on year to 14,700 tonnes.

Concern Stirol is the only producer of styrene polymers in Ukraine. The plant produces such PS grades, as expandable polystyrene (EPS), general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS).
