New SSBR line in Germany

US company Styron recently held a groundbreaking for its 50,000 tonnes/year SSBR (solution styrene butadiene
rubber) production line at its Schkopau facility in Germany. The new production train will be built alongside existing trains and is expected to be fully operational by the fourth quarter 2012. It will focus on producing
all existing clear and oil-extended Styron grades.
