ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Aromatics Thailand Co. to set aside its 450,000 to 6000,000 tonne per year styrene monomer (SM) project due of technology developments. The company is examining other higher value-added benzene derivatives as alternatives to SM. The benzene for the SM project would have come from the company's 363,000 tonne per year expansion, which is due to start up in the third quarter of 2008.
