HOUSTON (ICIS)--US styrene producers on Thursday said they are either sold out of material or close to being sold out until June, as demand has picked up alongside reduced production from a major supplier.
Trade participants said with US styrene producer Americas Styrenics operating at 50% of capacity at its St James facility in Louisiana for four weeks, demand has increased.
The St James styrene facility, which went down in mid-April, has a combined styrene capacity of 95,000 tonnes/year, according to ICIS.more >>
