HOUSTON, September 16, 2016 (PCW) – Dow’s propane dehydrogenation unit in Freeport will be starting up between Thursday and September 22, according to a TCEQ filing.
The unit has a capacity of 1.65 billion lbs/yr and is only the second of its kind in the US. The unit consumes some 35,000 b/d of propane.
It has been running intermittently since it first went into service last December.
“Plant technicians will proceed through start-up using start-up procedures. Flares will be used to minimize emissions,” the filing stated.
