Zeon starts full-scale SSBR production at Singapore
ERJ staff report (BC)
Singapore – Zeon Corporation has begun full-scale commercial production of solution polymerised styrene-butadiene rubber (SSBR) at its Singapore facility on Jurong Island. A ceremony to mark the formal completion of the plant was held on 11 April.
Zeon expects SSBR demand to grow rapidly due to increasing environmental awareness around the world and new tire labelling regulations in Japan and elsewhere.
The plant began partial operation in September 2013, followed by final commissioning and quality assurance work.
The Zeon Group views Singapore as an important location for its future operations and says it will continue to develop its business there.
