BRUSSELS, Oct 25 (Reuters) - The European Union said on Wednesday it had extended anti-dumping duties on imports of ethanolamines -- used in detergents and other cleaning products -- from the United States by a further two years.
The duties were first imposed in 1994 after the EU said growth in the U.S. share of the EU market for ethanolamines was due to underpriced imports. They were previously reviewed and renewed in 2000.
Under the latest renewal, Dow Chemical Corp. will pay a specific fixed duty of 59.25 euros ($74.57) per tonne, the EU's official journal said.
Duties for INEOS Americas and Huntsman Chemical Corp. were set at 69.40 euros and 111.25 euros per tonne respectively, it said, adding all other U.S. companies would pay 111.25 euros per tonne.
