Frankfurt/ Germany - INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has today announced the start of Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) production in Wingles, France, having completed the conversion of an existing polystyrene line to the production of ABS. This move makes Wingles the company’s third ABS production site in Europe together with Antwerp, Belgium and Cologne, Germany.
The ABS production capacity in Wingles will be 50,000 tonnes per year, to help meet the increased demand for ABS in Europe in industries such as Construction, Compounding, Household and Automotive.
Dr. Alexander Glück, President EMEA, comments: “The new ABS plant in Wingles not only increases our overall ABS capacity in Europe, but it also allows us to provide new ABS solutions to respond to developing customer demand across a broader portfolio.”
The sites in Antwerp, Belgium and Wingles, France address the production of INEOS Styrolution’s standard ABS solutions (Terluran® and Lustran® brands), while Cologne, Germany, is focused on the production of specialty ABS solutions (Novodur® brand).
The new ABS production line adds to the portfolio produced in Wingles with the site continuing to produce polystyrene for industries including Construction and Packaging.
