Monoethanolamine (MEA)

Receive the interaction of ammonia of water solution of ammonia and ethylene oxide. Used in oil and gas industry for adsorption of sour gases and sulphuric substances. First and extra grade monoethanolamine (MEA) is used for pharmaceutical, fabric and coating industries as well as for plastics production.
