Dow Elastomers: Feasibility Study for New EPDM Plant
The Dow Chemical Company will initiate a feasibility study for the construction of a new world-scale plant for the production of metallocene ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), sold under the trademark of Nordel IP Hydrocarbon Rubber.
The new facility is expected to set the standard in cost and efficiencies by incorporating the use of Dow’s newest proprietary catalyst technology and production via Dow’s solution process. The intent of the feasibility study is to identify potential partners and locations for this new EPDM production facility.
According to Dow, the new facility will position Dow to meet the increasing global demand for EPDM by offering high performance products that serve key automotive, building and construction and consumer markets; maintain Dow’s cost competitive position; and demonstrate the company’s commitment to invest in specialty products that bring performance advantages to the marketplace.
