Sterling Leaves Styrene Business
As expected, Sterling Chemicals will exit the styrene business to pursue "other strategic initiatives." The decision comes after U.S. government clearance of a styrene supply agreement with Nova Chemicals that has been transferred to Ineos Nova, Nova's joint venture with Ineos (C&EN, Sept. 24, page 17). These actions made Sterling's Texas City, Texas, styrene plant redundant. Sterling says it has been evaluating other projects that might use its styrene-related facilities.
