Dow announced plans to expand its alkoxylation capacity at its existing facility in Tarragona, Spain. This low capital intensity, high return, incremental investment builds on the previously announced alkoxylation capacity expansion on the US Gulf Coast, to support growing demand and advance Dow’s leading positions in consumer, industrial, and infrastructure markets growing above GDP.
“New Dow’s more focused, agile, and market-oriented structure enables deeper collaboration with customers and faster response to market opportunities and capacity constraints,” said Ester Baiget, Business President of Dow Industrial solutions. “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.”
Dow’s alkoxylation franchise upgrades basic chemical building blocks in order to produce safe ingredients for cosmetics, household and industrial cleaning, paints and many other products for everyday use. This incremental investment will expand Dow’s production of high-quality lubricants, defoamers, speciality surfactants and ethoxylates.
