Huntsman Corporation expands polyetheramines production

THE WOODLANDS, US: Huntsman Corporation will expand its global polyetheramines (PEA) capacity by a minimum of 15 per cent as a result of debottlenecking three of its PEA manufacturing plants globally. The financial investment and capacity was not disclosed. Expansion is currently underway in the Americas, Europe and Asia. The company expects projects at its Conroe, Texas, US; Llanelli, Wales, UK and Singapore sites to be fully operational by May 2014.

“In addition to an increase in capacity, these debottlenecking projects will enhance Huntsman’s manufacturing flexibility globally. No disruptions in production are expected during this period,” said Stu Monteith, President, Performance Products division, Huntsman.
