The Performance Monomers business of the Dow Chemical Co. has announced that an incremental expansion strategy has unlocked an additional 15% of crude acrylic acid (CAA) capacity at its Deer Park, TX, facility. This capacity increase is a result of various improvement projects implemented in the CAA oxidation facility. These projects not only increased capacity, but also reportedly enhanced process safety and improved technology and reliability.

“Dow is committed to expanding and continuously improving our CAA capacity and capability through a series of reliability and improvement projects across our global manufacturing asset footprint,” said David Mongrue, global business manufacturing director. “Dow is not only growing with our customers, but helping our customers to grow and providing solutions that help meet new market demands.”
