According to a release on the company’s website, Dow Chemical completed the construction of its new 400,000 tons/year enhanced PE unit in Texas. The new unit was constructed as part of the company’s $6 billion expansion plan in the US Gulf Coast.

The new PE unit, which has now entered into the commissioning phase, is expected to become fully operational in Q4 of 2017 and produce more volume to meet growing demand across the globe.

In the release, it is said that the unit will produce ELITE enhanced PE resins, which are versatile and high performance, to be used in various packaging applications for food, personal hygiene products and industrial packaging.

The company is also planning to start up a new 1.5 million tons/year ethylene facility in mid-2017.
