MEGlobal to use Dow technology for new US facility

MIDLAND, US: The Dow Chemical Company said that MEGlobal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Equate Petrochemical Company has selected its Meteor ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol (EO/EG) process technology and Meteor EO-RETRO Catalyst to construct its monoethylene glycol (MEG) production facility on the US Gulf Coast – its first manufacturing unit in the US.

The unit is expected to come online in mid-2019. It will be adjacent to Dow’s Oyster Creek site in Freeport, Texas (US).

Dow’s Meteor Technology is the industry leading, low capital technology for world-scale EO/EG manufacturing facilities. It combines a high activity and high selectivity catalyst with a streamlined process design that results in lower capital and energy cost, high raw material efficiency, excellent operational reliability, and inherent safety and environmental features.

To date, Dow has licensed Meteor Technology for plants around the world with capacities to produce approximately 4.5 million metric tons per year of ethylene oxide equivalents.

“We are very pleased that MEGlobal selected Dow’s EO/EG technology and catalyst for its first US MEG facility. This is a state-of-the-art technology for a world-class facility, and we expect MEGlobal to reap the many rewards that come from Dow’s catalyst technology and the unique process simplicity that is the hallmark of the Meteor process,” said Faye Miller, Dow global commercial director, licensing & catalysts.
