Dow on track to start up Louisiana HDPE expansion by year end
HOUSTON, November 1, 2018 (PCW) -- DowDupont is on track to bring online a 125,000 mt/yr (275 million lbs/yr) bimodal HDPE debottleneck expansion in St Charles Parish, LA before the end of 2018, company officials said today in an earnings related call.
The expanded capacity will primarily serve high-performance pipe and fitting applications, along with the cap and closure market.
The company also expects to soon start up by year-end the Polyethylene-6 plant in Freeport, TX, which will be capable of producing 320,000 mt/yr (705 million lbs/yr) of high melt index elastomers (320,000 mt/yr), which have applications in flexible packaging, transportation and consumer markets. -- David Barry
