Huntsman Corp has broken ground on a $35m poly-etheramines plant in Singapore, based on Huntsman technology, with commissioning expected in the first quarter of 2007.
Don Stanutz, Huntsman performance products president, said the 16 000 tonne/year plant in Jurong Island, the company’s first manufacturing unit in Singapore, would meet Asian polyetheramines demand, which is growing at more than 10%/year.
‘The new facility will transform our performance products business from being primarily a distributor of imported products to a business with hard assets on the ground in this fast-growing region,’ he said.
