Among the top 50 chemicals worldwide, styrene was twentieth in 1994 with production of 11 270 million pounds (3). Styrene occurs naturally as a degradation product in cinnamic acid containing plants, e.g. balsamic trees (4), and as a by-product of fungal and microbial metabolism (5,6). Styrene has been detected in the atmosphere in many locations.

The styrene production process is run with a mixture of steam and ethyl benzene. The steam acts as a diluent to shift the reaction equilibrium to the right in favor of styrene and tends to limit side reactions and extend catalyst life. Typical steam-to-ethyl benzene ratios entering the reactor are 6-12. The styrene reaction is equilibrium limited.
