Dow recently announced plans to expand its global alkoxylation capacity in the U.S. and Europe to meet increasing demand across a wide range of fast-growing end markets where the company is delivering 10-15% annual growth rates. According to the company, the expansions will increase capacity while maintaining current carbon emissions levels through the use of efficient technologies and site improvements. These investments in the U.S. and Europe are backed by supply agreements with customers and are expected to come online in 2024 and 2025, respectively.
“We have consistently seen increased demand for our alkoxylation capabilities aligned to industry sectors growing faster than GDP across the cycle,” said Brendy Lange, business vice president of Dow Industrial Solutions. “These latest investments are another demonstration of our commitment to customer collaboration and innovation backed by industry leading integration.”
This announcement builds on alkoxylation capacity expansions in Louisiana and Spain, which Dow expects to come online this year. Collectively, the company’s investments will result in approximately 70% global capacity growth since 2020.
