Versalis and Honam Petrochemical have agreed to build an elastomer plant at Honam’s site in Yeosu, South Korea. The facility, with a capacity of 200,000 metric tons per year, is scheduled to come on-line in 2015. The companies have not disclosed the plant’s product slate or how much they will invest.
