Dow Polyurethanes, a business of The Dow Chemical Co., recently announced plans to increase its polyol and copolymer capacity at its Freeport, Texas, facilities as a result of debottlenecking.

“Dow is constantly evolving our technologies to help our customers grow,” said Mark Bassett, Global Business director. “DMC catalysis will allow our Texas facilities to meet customer needs in the region, while boosting global supply of Dow’s world-class products. This capacity increase positions Dow to assists customers with growing demand for polyols and copolymer polyols down the value chain.”

The facilities will reportedly use state-of-the art DMC catalysts to create polyol products with unique properties. The extra capacity is intended to expand Dow’s capability to leverage low carbon ethylene oxide costs in the U.S. Gulf Coast. It will also enable increased output of base polyols to be used in the expanded copolymer polyols facility, as well as extra volumes of flex slab and coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE) polyols to the NAA markets.
