Styron restarts Terneuzen, Netherlands SAN plant

LONDON (ICIS)--Styron’s 35,000 tonne/year styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) plant in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, is running at full capacity following planned maintenance, a company source confirmed on Monday.

The shutdown began in mid-June and ended in the first week of July.  

Styron’s announcement follows Styrolution lifting force majeure at its SAN and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany on 5 July. The force majeure was caused by a fire on 23 October 2011.

The recent outages did not have a major impact on European SAN supply, with players able to get product as and when needed because weak macroeconomic conditions had reduced end user consumption.
