Dow signs an agreement with PETRONAS Chemicals Group

Dow has recently signed an agreement with PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols, a subsidiary of PETRONAS’ petrochemical arm and Malaysia’s leading chemicals producer, PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad, to collaborate on a carbon project at PETRONAS’ world-scale ethylene oxide (“EOâ€?) production facility in support of the Official Carbon Partnership between Dow and the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Together, Dow and PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the operations of PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols EO plant. As part of the carbon project, Dow and PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols will be working together to quantify and obtain third-party verification of the climate benefits following the methodology of the Dow Climate Solutions Framework.

PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols’ facility in Malaysia is Dow’s first customer to use its state-of-the-art METEOR™ EO-RETRO 2000 Catalyst (“MR2000 Catalystâ€?). The catalyst is part of Dow’s high selectivity family of EO catalysts which improves the performance of the EO production process while reducing energy consumption. The MR2000 Catalyst has a higher selectivity to EO converting more of the raw material ethylene into the desired EO product and therefore reducing the formation of the undesirable byproduct CO2.
