The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) has increased its monopropylene glycol (MPG) capacity by 15 percent, an additional 35 kilotons per annum (KTA), in the Stade, Germany plant after completion of an advanced energy improvement and technology optimization project.
"The investment in our Stade Propylene Glycol (PG) unit exemplifies Dow's commitment to innovative technology and continued growth in reliable, high-quality PG manufacturing to help meet our customers' evolving needs," said John Smith, Propylene Oxide/Propylene Glycols global business director for Dow. "This capacity provides Dow with greater flexibility and reliability in meeting the demand growth of our strategic customers in Europe and across the globe."
The Stade expansion was completed in August 2010 during planned maintenance and raises the plant's propylene glycol nameplate capacity to approximately 270 KTA.
