Chevron Chemical may double the capacity of its new 100 000 tonne/year polystyrene plant under construction near Shanghai at Zhangjiagang, China, according to Jim Sullivan, Chevron's vice chairman.
Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony for the new facility, he expressed optimism that the new plant would be joined by additional polystyrene and petrochemical facilities. 'We hope to be partner of choice in China's drive to become self-sufficient in meeting its chemical needs,' said Sullivan.
The 100 000 tonne/year PS plant will produce general purpose and high impact resins on two lines. Inauguration of production is slated for the first quarter of 2000.
