Dow’s PDH unit operating at full capacity
HOUSTON, March 8, 2016 (PCW) -- Dow Chemical on late Monday said its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Freeport is operating at full capacity.
The 1.65 billion lb/yr (750,000 mt/yr) unit came online in late December.
Dow also said the unit completed its performance test in less than two months.
The company’s PDH unit is only the second such facility in the US. Enterprise Products Partners’ new PDH unit, which would be the US’ third, is scheduled to come online in the second quarter of next year. – Samantha Hartke
