Mary Page Bailey

The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, Mich.; www.dow.com) has announced that its joint venture membrane chlor-alkali facility with Mitsui & Co., Ltd (Tokyo; www.mitsui.com) has successfully initiated full-scale, commercial production. Dow’s share of the chlorine produced at the Dow-Mitsui Chlor-Alkali Freeport, Tex., facility will serve the growing feedstock needs of its performance- and market-driven businesses. In addition, Dow will market the caustic soda on behalf of the joint venture. The new facility has a nameplate capacity of approximately 800,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of chlorine.
