EU to Review Ethanolamine Duties After Dow Chemical Lifts Prices

April 11, 2012

The European Union is reviewing anti-dumping measures against ethanolamine imports from the U.S. as they apply to Dow Chemical Co. (DOW:US) after the company increased its prices.

The EU said Dow, based in Midland, Michigan, requested the review after raising its export prices for ethanolamines, which are used for products including detergents, textiles, herbicides and cement. The company provided “evidence showing that the continued imposition of the measure at its current level is no longer necessary to counteract the injurious dumping,” the EU said today in a statement on its website.
