At a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate expanded production of formulated polyols at its facility in Zhangjiagang / China, Dow Polyurethanes (Midland, Michigan / USA; www.dow.com) called the facility a "significant milestone" in its growth history. The expanded facility at the integrated Chinese site will have capacity to produce more than 120,000 t/y of formulated polyols when fully operational.
