Power outage halts Total's Carville PS plant

HOUSTON, June 28, 2016 (PCW) -- Total's integrated polystyrene (PS) plant in Carville, LA experienced a site-wide power outage over the weekend, and PS units remained shut for repairs on Tuesday.

The site, claimed to be the largest PS facility in the world, has a capacity of 660,000 mt/year.

Some PS buyers were notified that prime PS output might not resume for 3-4 weeks.

There were reports that the adjacent styrene monomer plant has already restarted. -- David Barry
