Huntsman to expand ethylene oxide capacity in the USA

October 31/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Huntsman Corp., a global manufacturer and marketer of differentiated chemicals, has conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for a USD150 million expansion project at Port Neches, according to Plastermart.

Huntsman is preparing for the expansion of its ethylene oxide manufacturing capacity at the Port Neches facility by adding a third EO unit.

The expansion will increase the EO capacity by more than 25% or 265 mln lbs per year. Upon completion, the Huntsman Port Neches plant will be the largest single-site producer of EO in North America.

As MRC wrote previously, this summer, Huntsman signed a definitive agreement to acquire Oxid LP, a privately-held manufacturer and marketer of specialty urethane polyols based in Houston, Texas. Oxid's polyols are a key component in the production of energy-saving polyurethane insulation products that are used in residential and commercial construction.

Huntsman is a global manufacturer and marketer of differentiated chemicals. Our operating companies manufacture products for a variety of global industries, including chemicals, plastics, automotive, aviation, textiles, footwear, paints and coatings, construction, technology, agriculture, health care, detergent, personal care, furniture, appliances and packaging.
