Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) and the Al-Zamil Group of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia announced today that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to form a joint venture to build a world-scale ethyleneamines manufacturing facility in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia.

The 66 million pound (30,000 metric ton) plant will produce ethylenediamine (EDA), diethylenetriamine (DETA), triethylenetetramine (TETA) and higher molecular weight versions such as TEPA, E-100, AEP and piperazine. The products serve as specialty intermediates for a variety of end uses including epoxy curing agents, bonding agents and lube-oil additives for gasoline and diesel engines. The companies anticipate the plant being on line in 2008.

Huntsman and Al-Zamil Group will have equal ownership in the facility. The joint venture will license Huntsman’s proprietary technology that the company has optimized in its U.S. plants. Huntsman will serve as the exclusive sales and marketing arm for the joint venture and will provide technical service and product applications assistance.

Huntsman Vice President of Performance Specialties, Stewart Monteith, commented, “This investment will help meet the growing global demand for ethyleneamines, especially in the Asia Pacific region. It is a critical component of our growth strategy for our amines portfolio. We could not be more pleased with Al-Zamil’s desire to join us in this dynamic business.”

The Al-Zamil Group of Companies and Huntsman also are partners in a maleic anhydride - butanediol manufacturing facility in Saudi Arabia. The GACIC joint venture produces precursors for Spandex® woven fibers.
