Petronas Chemicals collaborates with Dow on ethylene oxide production



KUALA LUMPUR, April 10 (Bernama) -- Dow has signed an agreement with Petronas Chemicals Glycols Sdn Bhd to collaborate on a carbon project at Petronas’ world-scale ethylene oxide (EO) production facility in Kerteh, Terengganu. 

The collaboration is in support of the Dow-International Olympic Committee's (IOC) official carbon partnership, said the companies in a joint statement today.  

Together, Dow and Petronas Chemicals Glycols, are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the operations of Petronas Chemicals Glycols EO plant.

Petronas Chemicals Glycols, is a subsidiary of Petronas’ petrochemical arm and Malaysia’s leading chemicals producer, Petronas Chemicals Group Berhad.  

Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd’s managing director/chief executive officer Datuk Sazali Hamzah said its participation in the carbon project through Petronas Chemicals Glycols was in line with the group commitment towards improvement in operational efficiency while reducing environmental footprint. 

"We have seen enhanced results from the change in catalyst, not only in operational excellence due to the higher catalyst selectivity resulting in higher production, but also in cost savings from reduced energy consumption.

"We are determined to continuously minimise our impact to the environment by adopting best practices for energy consumption through leveraging on leading-edge technology,” he said.

Petronas Chemicals Glycols’ facility in Malaysia is Dow’s first customer to use its state-of-the-art Meteor EO-RETRO 2000 Catalyst.  

The catalyst is part of Dow’s high selectivity family of EO catalysts, which improves the performance of the EO production process while reducing energy consumption.  

EO is one of the world’s most important chemical raw materials, essential in consumer product manufacturing, including textiles, detergents and insulation.
