Egypt’s E-Styrenics shuts PS plant

In Egypt, the local PS producer E-Styrenics, who has 200,000 tons/year production capacity, divided evenly between GPPS and HIPS, halted their GPPS operations.

A source from the company noted, “Demand has been improving and we receive an increasing number of inquiries on the back of the stabilizing crude oil prices. Lack of Asian suppliers in the import market during the Chinese New Year holiday also created better demand for our cargoes. However, at the moment, our stock levels are very comfortable and we first want to melt our existing cargoes before carrying on producing more. Once our stock levels starts to dwindle, we will restart our plant again.”

The source has not mentioned a date for the restart.
