Dow to shutdown Texan LDPE plant

05-Mar-09
Deteriorating demand amid a deepening global economic crisis, and overcapacity for low density polyethylene (LDPE) in North American markets has compeled Dow Chemical Company to shut down its Poly 2 LDPE plant in Freeport, Texas. To be shutdown by end of month, the plant employs approximately 40 people and includes three autoclave low density reactors. The plant has been in operation since 1959 and has a combined capacity of 225 million lbs. The age, cost effectiveness and the relatively obsolete technology of the plant requiring additional investment do not make continued operation a viable option.
