The Dow Chemical Co. has announced a project that will increase the polyolefin elastomers manufacturing capacity at its production facilities in Freeport, Texas, and Tarragona, Spain. The capacity expansions, in conjunction with SCG-Dow Group’s new world-scale specialty elastomers plant in Thailand (currently under construction), will result in a net capacity increase of 550 million lbs, bringing Dow’s dedicated global capacity for polyolefin elastomers to nearly 2 billion lbs.

This capacity expansion is a strategic investment to meet the growing needs of customers worldwide while maintaining Dow’s cost-competitive position. Dow sees increasing strong global demand for polyolefin plastomers and elastomers.
