Trinseo Tsing Yi Plant Welcomes Students from the University of Hong Kong

Fourth Year in a Row Company opens its plant to educate future chemists

Hong Kong - Thursday, March 15, 2018

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, welcomed chemistry students from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) for the fourth year in a row to visit its Tsing Yi Plant and Technical Center.

Trinseo leadership educated students on the Company and the plant, followed by a site tour of the manufacturing facilities, including the processing area and the control room. The discussion topics included Trinseo's commitment to sustainability and operating responsibly with respect to the environment, health and safety, product applications, manufacturing processes, safety of polystyrene (PS) for food contact applications, and the environment. The event concluded with an informative and interesting Q&A session, wrapped-up by the usual group photo-taking.

“The best way for our students to appreciate how we commercially manufacture polystyrene, from which many daily useful objects are made, is to experience it firsthand at a production plant. We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to tour Trinseo’s world-class polystyrene production site,” said Dr. Ying H. So, Honorary Associate Professor, HKU, who has a 27-year career in chemical research and the advancement of electronic materials. “From the informative presentations, our students learned a lot about the business model of a global chemical materials provider, and the importance of safety for the chemical industry. To see “real-life” plant operations, the equipment, and the testing equipment needed for stringent product quality control is an invaluable complement to what our students can learn in class.”

“As one of the few chemical plants in Hong Kong, it’s our pleasure to provide visualization of the chemical processes and understanding of the importance of sustainability in EH&S to the next generation of chemistry students,” said Alfred Chan, Site Leader, Tsing Yi Plant. “Through our four-year relationship with HKU, we have developed a close relationship with the community and help show future leaders an exciting career path.”
