HOUSTON (ICIS)--Styrolution’s Bayport styrene unit in Texas has been restarted, according to market participants and a source close to the company on Thursday.

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

Styrolution had said it would also do some plant maintenance during that time.

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