Ethylene Production Facility Expansion
Dow is incrementally expanding its Fort Saskatchewan ethylene facility by approximately 130,000 metric tons through the addition of another furnace and associated equipment. The additional ethylene will be consumed by existing polyethylene assets in the region. This project has received all regulatory approvals from Alberta Environment and Parks, and construction is underway. Facility construction and equipment installation will support an average of 700 jobs per year in Alberta, including indirect and induced economic activity. Start-up is anticipated to occur during the first half of 2021.
