Styrene Information and Research Center launches new site

New website focuses on styrene information for consumers, educators, the media, industry employees and communities.

The Styrene Information and Research Center (Arlington, Va., USA) has launched a new website (www.youknowstyrene.org) to serve as a one-stop source of information on styrene and styrene-based products for consumers, educators, the media, industry employees and communities.

Sections of the site include:

  • The Styrene You Know, which provides an overview, and describes styrene uses, benefits and properties;
  • Health and Safety aspects for consumers, communities and workers;
  • Green Styrene, which describes styrene-based products that are essential to 
renewable energy, safety and recreation, and addresses recycling and other 
sustainability aspects;
  • Styrene’s impact on jobs and the economy.

The new site is a companion to SIRC’s original website, www.styrene.org, which is designed more for regulatory and technical audiences.

SIRC is the principal trade association for the North American styrene industry, with its mission being the collection, development, analysis and communication of pertinent information on styrene. SIRC members represent 95 percent of North America’s styrene production capacity.
