Global Amines fires up Indonesia fatty amines production plant

Global Amines has commissioned a fatty amines production plant in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The facility will supply fatty amines to Global Amines customers in southeast Asia and further afield, extending the support offered by its existing production facilities in China, Europe and the Americas.

The products are used to produce key ingredients in personal care and home care, such as mild surfactants and co-surfactants for shampoo and dishwashing liquids, and also as raw materials for diverse industrial applications.

“Construction and commissioning under the pandemic restrictions was extremely challenging, but we are now very happy to have our new facility on stream to complete our truly global network for fatty amines production,” said Ernesto Horikoshi, group general manager of Global Amines.

“The substantial new capacity and extended footprint enable us to provide our customers with the stability of reliable and competitive supply for their ever-increasing needs,” he added.

Global Amines’ new facility is located in the largest integrated oleochemical site in the world, giving proximity to key feedstock supply.

This ensures access to RSPO-certified palm oil and its derivatives that meet sustainable palm oil production standards, it said.
