KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 (Bernama) -- Dow today signed an agreement with PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols, a subsidiary of PETRONAS’ petrochemical arm and Malaysia’s leading chemicals producer, PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad, to collaborate on a carbon project at PETRONAS’ world-scale ethylene oxide (“EO”) production facility in support of the Dow-International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Official Carbon Partnership. Together, Dow and PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the operations of PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols EO plant.  EO is one of the world’s most important chemical raw materials, essential in consumer product manufacturing, including textiles, detergents, insulation and more.

PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols reduced its operating costs at its Kertih, Terengganu, Malaysia, EO plant when it deployed a higher performance Dow proprietary EO catalyst. The more effective catalyst technology increased selectivity to EO and process reliability while reducing CO? emissions and energy consumption. As part of the carbon project, Dow and PETRONAS Chemicals Glycols will be working together to quantify and obtain third-party verification of the climate benefits following the methodology of the Dow Climate Solutions Framework.  This will help enable a positive climate legacy and balance the operational carbon footprint of the IOC.
