Published on 2016-08-01. Author : SpecialChem

DALLAS -- Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company, has ceased production, storage and distribution of monomethylamine (MMA) at its Cangrejera, Mexico, acetyl intermediates manufacturing facility. The production cessation includes both anhydrous and 50 percent solution grades of MMA.

Celanese Ceases Production, Storage & Distribution of MMA

After a strategic business review, Celanese has concluded that production and distribution of MMA are no longer a viable business option. The site will continue to produce dimethylamine (DMA) and trimethylamine (TMA) with a focus on growing and expanding the company’s amines business, along with other key acetyl products manufactured at the site.

To support continued growth of the Celanese amines business globally, MMA production equipment at the Cangrejera facility has been completely converted to produce increased volumes of DMA and TMA exclusively.
