HOUSTON (ICIS)--Styrolution’s Bayport styrene unit in Texas was expected to come back online this week as scheduled, but as of Friday the company had not confirmed any start-up.

The company said it took a 10-day turnaround early in the month to allow one of its ethylene suppliers to upgrade equipment that feeds that location.

Styrolution also said it would take the opportunity to do some plant maintenance.

The Bayport styrene unit has a capacity of 770,000 tonne/year.
