Nouryon has successfully produced the first ethylene amines products in a Swedish demonstration plant, confirming the new technology on an industrially relevant scale and marking the next step towards full commercialization. The company plans to built a world-scale manufacturing facility based on this new technology.

Amsterdam/The Netherlands; Stenungsund/Sweden — Nouryon has inaugurated a demonstration plant in Stenungsund, Sweden to showcase a novel and more sustainable technology platform to produce ethylene amines and their derivatives. The technology, which is based on ethylene oxide (EO), allows for selective production of a wide range of end products, enabling the company to expand its ethylene amine product offering.

Ethylene amines are key building blocks in several growth applications, including epoxy curing, oil and road additives and wet strength paper resins.

Nouryon to Double Surfactants Capacity at Stenungsund Site

27/08/2019 - Nouryon will double capacity at its surfactants plant in Stenungsund, Sweden. The $ 13.3-million expansion and upgrade project includes the installation of a new reactor and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2021. read...

Joppe Smit, General Manager Ethylene Amines at Nouryon said that the ability to extend the EO-based ethylene amines portfolio to selectively produce compounds including diethylenetriamine (Deta), triethylenetetramine (Teta) and other higher amines was a major opportunity. In addition, the new technology would significantly reduce raw material consumption and substantially improve both cost and environmental performance by nearly eliminating all waste when compared with existing processes, he added.

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. The company believes that this technology has the potential to become a game-changer in the industry.
