The Performance Monomers business of the Dow Chemical Co. has announced a 10% increase in capacity for the production of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) at its Freeport, Texas, facility. The capacity increase is due to a successful debottlenecking initiative that addresses Dow’s need to increase GMA capacity for its strategic customers. Key drivers for this effort include improving process and mechanical reliability.

“Through the GMA debottlenecking initiative, Dow made significant process and reliability improvements, which delivered a considerable increase in plant capacity in less than a year,” said David Mongrue, director of Global Business Manufacturing, Performance Monomers. “This further reinforces Dow’s commitment toward delivering on our strategy of being a highly reliable organization and growing with our strategic customers.”
