Dow invests in Thailand
Dow Chemical is moving forward with plans to build a $1.2 billion liquid-feedstock-based ethylene cracker in Rayong, Thailand, with that country's Siam Cement Co (SCC). The plant, which is expected to come onstream in 2010, will be located near Dow's existing joint ventures with SCC in Map Ta Phut, Thailand.
