Dow Polyurethanes Plans Capital Investments in Europe

Proceed with Polyols Capacity Expansion in Terneuzen

Dow Polyurethanes, a business group of The Dow Chemical Company, announced that it will move forward with the detailed engineering phase of the nameplate capacity expansion of its polyols plant in Terneuzen, The Netherlands. The company has selected Jacobs Engineering, a design contract firm based in The Netherlands, to handle the engineering needs of the project.

Dow announced in March of this year that it had completed a feasibility study to increase polyols production at the facility by 180 kilotons per annum (KTA). Dow expects to begin work on the expansion in early 2008, with completion shortly thereafter.

Raw materials for the polyols produced at the site will be sourced from the 300 KTA joint Dow and BASF hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide (HPPO) facility currently under construction in Antwerp, Belgium.
