Technip has been awarded contract for new 500 KTA ethylbenzene styrene monomer plant in China
Styrene monomer, with a worldwide capacity of over 30 million metric tons per annum, is a precursor to the production of a variety of polymer derivatives, including polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and styrene butadiene rubber (SBR)

Technip was awarded a contract by Qingdao Soda Ash Industrial New Material & Technology Company to provide the technology, engineering, selected critical equipment and technical services for a 500 KTA ethylbenzene styrene monomer (EBSM) plant to be located in Dongjiakou Port Industrial Zone Park, Qingdao City, Shandong Province, People’s Republic of China.

The plant’s products will be used for manufacturing a broad range of plastics.

Technip’s operating centre in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, will execute the project.

The technology for the plant will be provided through an agreement with Badger Licensing LLC.

"This project will be one of the largest EBSM plants in China, and the second 500 KTA EBSM plant in China utilising Badger’s technology,” said Stan Knez, senior vice president at Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology.

“Badger’s superior technology, coupled with Technip’s reputation, experience and competitive offering were key factors in this award.”

With a closely integrated technology and project delivery organisation, Technip is widening its portfolio of leading onshore solutions.
