LONDON (CNI)--German chemicals and life sciences group BASF announced on Monday a Euro100/tonne price increase for all types of ethanolamines in Europe.

BASF told CNI that the increase, which takes effect immediately or as contracts permit, is around 10%. Current ethanolamines prices vary between about Euro1000 (about $923) and Euro1400 a tonne.

In a statement, BASF blamed the price rise on greatly increased raw material and distribution costs, and unsatisfactory product margins.
