Huntsman Corporation and Saudi-based Al-Zamil Group announced that their joint venture, Arabian Amines Company, has broken ground on its world-scale ethyleneamines project in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The joint venture expects to finish construction of the 27,000 mt/yr facility by the end of 2009.

Don Stanutz, President of the Performance Products Division of Huntsman, commented, “We are very honoured and pleased to partner with the Zamil Group on such a significant and strategic investment in the Kingdom.

When this new facility is completed, Huntsman ethyleneamine customers will have access to a manufacturing footprint with a global reach and Huntsman's latest ethyleneamines technology.”

Mr. Fahad Al-Zamil, President of the Jubail operations of the Al Zamil Group, remarked, “This project supports the Kingdom's intention to move further downstream in derivative chemistry.

With its strategic locating in Saudi Arabia, this new plant will be very well positioned to compete in the growing Asian market for ethyleneamines.”

Hyundai Engineering Co Ltd and Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corporation, selected by Huntsman and Al-Zamil Group as the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors for the project, joined in the ceremonial April 28th groundbreaking activities in Jubail.

Ethyleneamines are used by Huntsman customers in a wide variety of end-use applications, including fungicides, paper resins, epoxies, chelants and lube oils. Their versatility brings unique performance advantages to many additional end uses.
