Dow: GTE and LER Plants in Shanghai

Dow Epoxy, a business group of The Dow Chemical Company and a leading global supplier of epoxy resins and related feedstock products, chose Shanghai Chemical Industry Park as the site for its world-scale 150,000-MTPA glycerine-to-epichlorohydrin (GTE) plant and 100,000-MTPA liquid epoxy resins (LER) plant. Both plants are slated to start up in the 2009-2010 timeframe.

The announcement directly underscores Dow’s growth strategy, and marks another major step forward in the Company’s quest for sustainable chemistries. The world-scale GTE facility will be the first to use Dow’s innovative and proprietary GTE technology, which uses a renewable resource – glycerine from bio-diesel – to produce epichlorohydrin. This technology provides significant cost and environmental advantages versus the conventional process technologies. In 2006 Dow launched a stand alone, full-process GTE demonstration unit at its Stade site in Germany.
