Styrolution is optimizing its specialty production platform in Europe, Midle East, and Africa EMEA to better serve customers, to provide secure sourcing alternatives and spur further growth in styrenic copolymer sales in EMEA.

Styrolution will now offer Novodur grades from its production sites in Cologne, Ludwigshafen and Schwarzeide, while Luran S grades are now available from both Ludwigshafen and Schwarzheide. Additionally, the company will expand compounding capacity in Schwarzheide to enable insourcing of specialty ABS and Novodur GF previously produced by external partners.

Schwarzheide

The Schwarzheide site will become an increasingly important hub for Styrolution in EMEA with the production of compounded specialty styrenic products, such as Novodur GF, Terblend N and S, Zylar, and anti-static polystyrene. Styrolution plans to complete the majority of this project by the end of 2013.
