Zhangzhou Chimei Chemical announced the official start of mass production at its newly-built polystyrene production lines on March 10.

These production lines, with an annual capacity of 350,000 tons, are expected to be fully operational in the second half of this year. Combined with the PS production capacity of Zhenjiang CHIMEI, they will strengthen the Chimei Group's presence and customer service in the mainland market. The addition of the new production capacity will bring Chimei's total annual polystyrene production capacity to 920,000 tons.

The construction of the Zhangzhou Chimei polystyrene S plant took 20 months. High-quality safety designs and advanced environment-friendly equipment were used in the construction to build an energy-efficient, safe, environmentally friendly, and high-performance next-generation plastics plant.

Zhangzhou CHIMEI Chemical, a reinvestment by Chemei Corporation, was founded in August 2018. It is located in the Gulei Port Economic Development Zone in Zhangzhou, Fujian.

The first phase of the plant's ABS capacity of 450,000 tons per annum (tpa) started in September 2021 and will increase to 600,000 tpa, together with the PC capacity of 180,000 tpa expected to start in 2025, bringing the plant's total future capacity to one million tpa.
