SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Styron said on Monday it will expand its solution styrene butadiene rubber (S-SBR) capacity in Schkopau, Germany, by building a 50,000 tonne/year production line.

Construction of the new line would start in May 2011, with production expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2012, Styron said.
