Dow: Capital Investments in Europe

Dow Polyurethanes, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, announced today that it plans to further invest in Europe by expanding capacity at two of its facilities over the next two years. The company plans to increase name-plate capacity at its polyols plant in Terneuzen, The Netherlands, by 180 kilotons per annum and at its propylene glycol (PG) facility in Stade, Germany, by 80 kt/a.

In September 2006, Dow announced plans to construct a Dow/BASF hydrogen peroxide-to-propylene oxide (HPPO) facility at Antwerp, Belgium, scheduled for start-up in 2008. Dow also completed a 40 KTA expansion of its propylene oxide (PO) name-plate capacity at Stade in January of this year, bringing its total PO capacity at the plant to 630 kt/a. PO is a key raw material used in the production of both propylene glycol and polyols.

According to Dow Polyurethanes business vice president, Pat Dawson, the investments are driven by strong customer demand for polyurethane and propylene glycol end-use products in the region, and support Dow’s plans to further grow its Performance businesses.
