LONDON (ICIS)--Exports of ethylbenzene (EB) from the EU into other regions were up slightly in January compared to the same month last year, according to data from statistics agency Eurostat released on Monday.

Exports were also up from the previous month by 81 tonnes. However, at around 100 tonnes in total, the volumes involved are negligible. 

EB is a highly captive product that is used in the production of styrene, with the majority of EB/SM (styrene monomer) units integrated, meaning that little material moves between global regions.
