Dow expands alkoxylation capacity to meet growing demand

Tarragona SpainDow, an innovation science company, announced its plans to expand the alkoxylation capacity at its existing facility in Tarragona, Spain to meet the demand from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India

The company added that the new capacity is low capital intensive, high in returns, and an incremental investment.

The capacity will be built on the alkoxylation capacity expansion previously announced on the US Gulf Coast to support growing demand and advance Dow’s leading positions in attractive consumer, industrial and infrastructure markets growing above GDP.

Ester Baiget, business president of Dow Industrial solutions, said, “New Dow’s more focused, agile, and market-oriented structure enables deeper collaboration with customers and faster response to market opportunities and capacity constraints.”

“This new capacity optimises our existing asset infrastructure to enable growth at our customers. It is a true testament to our dedication and passion for seeking solutions that will benefit our customers, our markets and the communities in which we live and work,” she added.

Dow’s versatile alkoxylation franchise upgrades basic chemical building blocks to produce safe ingredients for cosmetics, household and industrial cleaning, paints and many other products.

This incremental investment will expand Dow’s production of high-quality lubricants, defoamers, specialty surfactants and ethoxylates.
