Dow Completes Polyols Expansion at Netherlands Facility (12/22/09)
“We anticipate increased demand for polyols as the global economy recovers, and this investment continues to ensure we have a reliable supply of essential products from the Terneuzen site,” said Guillermo Novo, vice president of Dow Polyurethanes. “Additional value to our customers comes from our ability to take advantage of production of propylene oxide (PO) - a raw material for polyols - at the new hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide (HPPO) facility in nearby Antwerp, Belgium. As a global polyols leader committed to this industry, Dow continues to create growth opportunities for customers through sound investment in capability improvements.”
The capability expansion makes Terneuzen the largest and most flexible of Dow’s 11 polyols production sites.
