The company produces and supplies propylene carbonate and ethylene carbonate in North America. It also produces substituted propylamines. The company uses internally produced ethylene, EO, EG, and PO in the manufacture of majority of its amines, carbonates, and surfactants. Its amines are used in various consumer and industrial applications, including personal care products, polyurethane foam, fuel and lubricant additives, paints and coatings, composites, solvents and catalysts. The company’s major amines customers include AkzoNobel, Chevron Oronite, Dow, Ashland, Afton, Unilever, Monsanto, and PPG. The company has the capacity to produce approximately 2.5 billion pounds of surfactant products annually at its 10 facilities located in North America, Europe, India, and Australia. It is a major global manufacturer of nonionic, anionic, cationic, and amphoteric surfactants products. The company’s surfactant products are primarily used in consumer detergent and industrial cleaning applications. It is a primary European producer of components for powder and liquid laundry detergents and other cleaners. In addition, the company manufactures and markets a range of mild surfactants and specialty formulations for use in personal care applications. Its major surfactants customers include The Sun Products Corporation, L'Oreal, Monsanto, Nufarm, Clorox, Henkel, Colgate, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever. The company is a North America's producer of LAB with alkylation capacity of 400 million pounds per year at its plant in Chocolate Bayou, Texas. LAB is a surfactant intermediate, which is converted into LAS, a major anionic surfactant used worldwide for the production of consumer, industrial, and institutional laundry detergents. The company also manufactures a higher-molecular-weight alkylate, which is used as an additive to lubricants. Its major customers for LAB and specialty alkylates include Colgate, Lubrizol, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and The Sun Products Corporation. The company produces maleic anhydride, a chemical intermediate that is used to produce unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), which are mainly used in the production of fiberglass reinforced resins for marine, automotive, and construction products. Maleic anhydride is also used in the production of lubricants, food additives, and artificial sweeteners. The company has the capacity to produce approximately 572 million pounds annually at its facilities located in Pensacola, Florida; Geismar, Louisiana; and Moers, Germany. The company also licenses its maleic anhydride technology and supplies its catalysts to licensees and to worldwide merchant customers. The company offers its seventh generation of maleic anhydride-catalyst. Its primary maleic anhydride customers include AkzoNobel, AOC, Ashland, BASF, Chevron Oronite, CCP Composites, Lanxess, Lubrizol, Infineum, Reichhold, and Tate & Lyle. The company also has the capacity to produce approximately 945 million pounds of EG annually at its facilities in Port Neches, Texas and Botany, Australia. Products and Markets Specialties The company’s specialty SBUs are organized around various end markets, such as energy, materials, additives, processing chemicals, and agrochemicals. Amines: Amines refers to the family of intermediate chemicals that are produced by reacting ammonia with various ethylene and propylene derivatives. Morpholine/DGA Agent: Morpholine and DGA agent are produced as co-products by reacting ammonia with di-ethylene glycol (DEG). Morpholine is used in various niche industrial applications, including rubber curing (as an accelerator) and flocculants for water treatment. DGA agent is primarily used in gas treating, electronics, herbicides, and metalworking end use applications.
