On February 28, 2019 the Bay3 project broke ground at the Baystar facility in Pasadena, TX. The 625,000 metric ton-per-year Borstar polyethylene unit is a state-of-the-art polyethylene production facility that when comes online in 2021 will produce products for the most demanding applications. Approximately 1,750 jobs will be created during the peak engineering and construction phases of the project. Bay3 will more than double the site’s capacity and allow Baystar to provide our North American customers with a greater range of high-valued-added and resource-efficient products.
