KINGSPORT, US: Eastman Chemical Company announced the successful completion of a de-bottlenecking of its Diethylhydroxylamine (DEHA) unit in St Gabriel, Louisiana. The debottlenecking has resulted in a 15 to 20 percent increase in capacity.

Eastman is the only producer of DEHA in the Western Hemisphere and has been producing DEHA for well over 40 years. DEHA is used primarily in water treatment and in the production of various polymers, such as styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR).

“With growth in demand for DEHA, our lead times had increased significantly. We take pride in our reliability and good customer service. This capacity increase will help us meet the growing needs of our customers,” said Kyle Irion, US product manager for Eastman’s Care Chemicals business unit, which is part of its Additives & Functional Products operating segment.
