Dow Chemical Plans $4 Billion in New Projects

New investments recently announced by Dow Chemical are expected to come online in a phased manner, beginning in 2020, and will require estimated capital expenditures of approximately $4 billion, spread over the next five years.

The primary components of this plan include expansion of the capacity of Dow’s new TX-9 ethylene cracker through the addition of two furnaces, bringing the facility’s total ethylene capacity to 2 million metric tons and making the TX-9 cracker the largest ethylene facility in the world.

Dow also plans construction of a world-scale 600,000 metric ton polyethylene unit in the U.S. Gulf Coast. This new capacity will address consumer-driven demand in specialty packaging, health and hygiene, and industrial and consumer packaging applications.
