Union Carbide Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Co., has announced plans for a multi-year spending program designed to make capital improvements in support of Dow's Solvents & Intermediates business. The modernization will improve the reliability of the Isopropanol and Oxo production facilities at the site and increase isopropanol capacity by 40 million pounds. "Our Solvents & Intermediates business is not only a significant supplier to the paints and coatings industry, it also supplies important raw materials used in the production of a variety of Dow products," says Ted Cosse, vice president for Acrylics, Solvents & Intermediates. "This investment represents a long-term commitment to our industry, our customers and Texas City."
