Construction is advancing on Dow’s propane dehydrogenation plant.

Dow Chemical has begun construction of a new ethylene cracker at its Freeport, Texas, complex. The cracker will have 1.5 million metric tons per year of capacity and be completed in 2017, the company says. A propane dehydrogenation plant that it is also building on the site is more than 30% complete, Dow adds. Chevron Phillips Chemical and ExxonMobil also recently announced the beginning of construction of their own Texas crackers.
