Styron Opens New SSBR Production Line in Schkopau, Germany
Today Styron leaders joined employees, Dr. Reiner Haseloff, Minister-President of Saxony-Anhalt Germany and other dignitaries to celebrate the opening of Styron's new SSBR (Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber) production line.
The new production line introduces an additional capacity of 50,000 metric tons at the production facility in Schkopau, Germany. This world-scale unit will begin operation as of today and supply Styron's tire customers around the world.
The new production train is built alongside existing trains, fully in line with initial construction plans, within budget and remarkably fast in comparison to projects of similar scale and complexity in the industry. The train focuses on SSBR production, with the capability to produce all existing clear and oil extended Styron grades.
