MIDLAND, US: The Dow Oxygenated Solvents business will expand butyl glycol ethers capacity at Seadrift, Texas facility. This plan is part of a two-phase debottleneck project that will increase capacity of butyl cellosolve solvent and butyl carbitol solvet by 15 per cent. Phase 1 will be completed later this month followed by Phase 2, which will be finished during a planned turnaround.

“The Seadrift debottleneck is the first of a series of announcements that will highlight major projects that are currently underway within the business. These investments reinforce our commitment to the market and being the world’s premier supplier of oxygenated solvents,” said Mark Bassett, Director, Global Business, Oxygenated Solvents, Dow.
