INEOS Styrolution invests in ABS world-scale plant in China

January 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has announced today plans to build a world-scale ABS plant in Ningbo, China, said the company.

The new production site will be adjacent to the recently acquired polystyrene plant in Ningbo.

Less than a year after announcing the acquisition of two polystyrene production sites in China, INEOS Styrolution embarks on plans to grow its production capacity in the country significantly. The company plans to construct a green field ABS plant adjacent to the Ningbo polystyrene site in the Zhejiang Province in Eastern China.

Its annual capacity is planned to be at 600,000 tonnes. Construction is planned to start in 2020, completion is expected in 2023.

The announcement made by INEOS Styrolution forms part of a wider Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement with the Ningbo Municipal Peoples Government signed today by INEOS. This framework agreement will help facilitate mutual benefit between INEOS and Ningbo City.

"China is the biggest ABS market in the world. This new investment will give us a tremendous opportunity to provide our customers in the region with locally produced ABS grades," Steve Harrington, President Asia-Pacific said.

"Asia has been identified by us as a significant growth market," adds Kevin McQuade, CEO INEOS Styrolution. Todays announcement shows our dedication to our Triple Shift growth strategy. As the global leader in styrenics, we are committed to supporting our Chinese customers growth with our new local production capacities."

As per MRC's DataScope, overall imports of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) to the Russian market decreased in the first eleven months of 2019 by 4% year on year to 31,300 tonnes. This figure was at 32,700 tonnes in January-November 2018. South Korean companies LG Chem and Lotte Advanced accounted for more than half of the country's ABS imports. Styrolution and Trinseo shipped the bulk of European ABS. The share of their supplies is 23% of the total imports.
