The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global propylene oxide
market for 2016-2020.
is used to produce propylene glycol, polyurethanes, and glycol ethers.
Scheduled to be operational in the second half of 2015, the plant is intended to supply hydrogen peroxide as a raw material for the manufacture of propylene oxide
(PO) by Sadara at its integrated chemicals complex.
The new plant would use the hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide
(HPPO) jointly developed by Dow and BASF.
Initially, the Ras Tanura complex will include units for polyethylene, ethylene oxide and glycol, propylene oxide
and glycol, chlor-alkali, vinyl chloride monomer, polyurethane components, epoxy resins, polycarbonate, amines, and glycol ethers.
As an integral part of the transaction, Bayer will acquire an equity interest in the production of propylene oxide
(PO), a raw material for the manufacture of polyols.
Several types of specialty synthetic rubbers include Nipol nitrile rubber (NBR), Zetpol hydrogenated nitrile rubber (HNBR), Hytemp polyacrylate (ACM), Hydrin epichlorohydrin (ECO) and Parel propylene oxide
The partners are committed to the polyurethanes, styrene, propylene oxide
and derivatives sectors, and have access to leading technologies as major international suppliers.
Previously Shipp joined Dow in 1981 and has held several manufacturing positions, including vice president and site director of Dow's Louisiana Operations; global operations director of the Propylene Oxide
and Glycols business; global business vice president for Dow Oxides & Glycols; business group president for Basic Chemicals and president - India, Middle East & Africa (IMEA).
Dow also completed a 40 kiloton per year expansion of its propylene oxide
name-plate capacity in Stade in January 2007.
