Meglobal has picked Dow Meteor Ethylene Oxide/Ethylene Glycol (EO/EG) process technology and Meteor Eo-Retro Catalyst to construct its first MEG production facility in the US.

According to Dow, its Meteor technology is the industry leading, low capital technology for world-scale EO/EG manufacturing facilities.

“It combines a high activity and high selectivity catalyst with a streamlined process design that results in lower capital and energy cost, high raw material efficiency and excellent operational reliability,” the company said.

Dow added that, till date, it has licensed Meteor technology for plants around the world with capacities to produce around 4.5 million metric tons per year of ethylene oxide equivalents.

Meglobal announced plans to construct the new 700 KTA MEG production facility in March 2016 and is expected to become online in mid-2019.

Faye Miller, Dow global commercial director, Licensing & Catalysts said, “This is a state-of-the-art technology for a world-class facility, and we expect MEGlobal to reap the many rewards that come from the technology.” (AR)
