Nouryon to expand ethylene amines offering
The technology, which is based on ethylene oxide (EO), allows for selective production of a wide range of end products, enabling Nouryon to expand its ethylene amine product offering.
The company has successfully produced the first ethylene amines products in the demonstration plant, including diethylenetriamine (DETA) and triethylenetetramine (TETA), confirming the new technology on an industrially relevant scale and marking the next step towards full commercialisation.
Enhancement of the ethyleneamine product range
Ethylene amines are key building blocks in several growth applications, including epoxy curing, oil and road additives and wet strength paper resins.
Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) activities for a world-scale manufacturing facility based on this new technology are expected to start by the end of 2019.
