Taminco starts up new DMAPA unit in USA


 GHENT, BELGIUM: Taminco announces the on-time start up of its new DMAPA unit in St. Gabriel, Louisiana. This unit was announced in March. Combined with Taminco’s existing production in Ghent, Belgium, will make Taminco one of the world’s leading producers of DMAPA (dimethylaminopropylamine). DMAPA is primarily used as a raw material for amine oxides and betaines both of which are surfactants in a wide variety of personal care and household products, such as detergents, shampoos, and liquid body wash. DMAPA based surfactants show strong growth globally, because of the combination of their mild character and excellent performance.

 “We are quite pleased that our DMAPA unit is now on stream and we will be able to better service our customers globally.   Taminco is committed to supply its surfactant customers wherever they are and this is an important step for our business.”said Sabine Ketsman, Global Business Director for Specialty Derivatives, Taminco.

Besides DMAPA, the St. Gabriel plant manufactures many other amines including alkylamines, a variety of alkanolamines like DMEA, DEEA, MDEA, and DEHA.
