SINGAPORE: PCS Expanding Butadiene Capacity

Petrochemical Corp. of Singapore (PCS) Managing Director Akira Yonemura last week announced the company's decision to proceed with construction of a new butadiene plant. This is made possible, he explained, because of PCS's long-term agreement to supply butadiene to a new neodymium polybutadiene rubber plant being built by Lanxess in Singapore. PCS, in its 2011 Review, said it was considering a new plant that would more than double its existing butadiene capacity, which is listed on PCS's website as 60,000 t/y.(Syed Rashid Ali, Karachi, Pakistan)
