Eastman Completes Expansion Of Tertiary Amine Capacity

Feb. 9, 2022
Growing demand creates need for investment projects in Europe and North America.

Eastman’s care additives business announces the completion of a significant expansion of its tertiary amine capacity, primarily DIMLA 1214, at both its Ghent, Belgium, and Pace, Florida, manufacturing sites. The Ghent expansion leads to an increase in capacity while the Pace expansion improves production flow, making it the world’s largest tertiary amine unit, according to the company.

“We’ve seen a significant increase in tertiary amine demand, partially due to structural changes in consumer habits related to the global pandemic and are committed to serving our customers and meeting global consumer needs,” says Robert Ash, product director for Eastman care additives. “I want to thank our customers for their patience and partnership over the past year as we executed these expansions.”

Ash also thanked the Eastman engineering staff and manufacturing teams that completed the projects safely in an accelerated timeline during a global pandemic.

“It’s an impressive achievement that illustrates Eastman’s commitment to safety and our high level of engineering expertise,” Ash says.
