Dow / Solvay / BASF: Joint-Venture

The Dow Chemical Company, Midland/Michigan, USA, and Solvay S.A., Brussels/Belgium, announced an agreement to create a joint venture for the construction of a hydrogen peroxide (HP) plant in Thailand. Scheduled to be operational in 2010, the new plant will serve as a raw meterial source for the manufacture of propylene oxide (PO). The HP plant will be the largest in the world, with a capacity of over 330,000 t/a of HP at 100 % concentration.

At the same time Dow and BASF, Ludwigshafen/Germany, are advancing negotiations for the construction of a world-scale, 390,000 t/a propylene oxide manufacturing facility in Map Ta Phut/Thailand. It will be the second world-scale plant based on the HPPO (hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide) technology. Scheduled in 2008, Dow and BASF will start-up production of the first plant in Antwerp/Belgium with a capacity of 300,000 t/a. Propylene oxide is used to produce propylene glycol, polyurethanes an glycol ethers.
