HOUSTON (ICIS)--US Dow Chemical and chlorine producer K2 Pure Solutions have opened a new chlor-alkali plant at Dow’s Pittsburg site in California, Dow said on Wednesday.
The plant, which K2 Pure built and operates, will produce bleach for municipal water treatment facilities in northern California.
It will also supply Dow’s Pittsburg site with chlorine for the manufacture of crop protection products and other materials, Dow said.
Additionally, K2 Pure is leasing an additional facility to Dow, which K2 Pure operates to generate chlorine for use by Dow via pipeline.
Both plants combined have a capacity of about 209,000 tonnes/year of chlor-alkali products.
