The Dow Chemical Company has announced it is evaluating a number of investment options for potential expansion and new capacity to meet the growing global ethanolamines demand of its customers. The Amines business is working with Union Carbide Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, on options regarding possible expansion of the ethanolamines facility in Hahnville, LA (St. Charles Operations). This facility, which is fully integrated from ethylene to ethanolamines, practices a monoethanolamine (MEA)-selective process and is well suited to service the growing demand for MEA in the merchant market and in the company's ethyleneamines production process. "Dow is also considering adding ethanolamine capacity in Asia Pacific to meet customer needs in the industry's fastest growing region," says Kevin Dillan, global business director, Dow Amines. Ethanolamines are used in multiple applications, including wood treatment, pharmaceuticals, agricultural products, adhesives, lubricants and personal care products. They are also used as an intermediate in the production of ethyleneamines.
