In North America, the Styrene Information & Research Center (SIRC) serves as a resource for industry, federal and state governments, and international agencies on issues related to the potential impact of exposure to styrene on human health and the environment. Over the years, most of SIRC’s resources have been invested in scientific research on the potential human health and environmental effects of styrene.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., SIRC was formed in 1987 as the principal focal point for public information and research on styrene. SIRC is a non-profit organization consisting of voting member companies involved in the manufacturing or processing of styrene, associate member companies that fabricate styrene-based products, and international members. Collectively, SIRC’s membership represents approximately 95% of the North American styrene industry.
The Styrene Information & Research Center conducts research on the health effects of styrene monomer.
