HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based Dow Chemical awarded Fluor a basic engineering and design services (EDS) contract for the company's on-purpose propylene plant, the contractor said on Wednesday.
The plant will be built in Freeport, Texas. The plant is planned for start-up in 2015.
Both plants would use propane as a feedstock. Most US propylene producers rely on oil-based feedstocks.
Once construction is completed, the Dow plant will produce polymer grade propylene (PGP), Fluor said.
