Catalysts

Catalysts to enable more efficient chemical production

Dow has a long history of developing and implementing new catalysts in production facilities across regions, operating ages, conditions and reactor designs. We offer catalysts to produce oxo alcohols and ethylene oxide (EO).

We leverage our firsthand understanding of plant operations and plant design to our catalyst development and ongoing catalyst management and customer support. Customers can take advantage of a variety of engineering services, including process optimization, plant capacity studies, plant upgrades and remote and on-site technical support from Dow representatives.

Oxo Alcohol Production
Dow’s NORMAX™ Catalyst is a leading hydroformylation product used to produce alcohols from olefins. Licensed plants designed for the LP OxoSM SELECTORSM 30 Technology use NORMAX™ Catalyst to help achieve higher ratios of linear to branched aldehydes from short chain olefins. NORMAX™ Catalyst is only available from Dow and is made available to customers licensing the LP OxoSM Process Technology from Dow and Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies Limited.

EO/EG Production

Dow’s METEOR™ EO-RETRO 2000 Catalyst (MR2000 Catalyst) is a high-selectivity, high-activity, silver-based catalyst for EO/EG production. It helps reduce direct CO2 generation, hence minimizing CO2 as a byproduct. The MR2000 Catalyst also helps improve process efficiency by reducing energy use in the downstream separation phase. It is robust and flexible and can be installed at production facilities regardless of the plant’s age, design technology and retrofit history.

MR2000 Catalyst is available to customers using any EO/EG process technology, including Dow METEOR™ Process licensees.

Join our Carbon Challenge

The Dow Carbon Challenge was first announced during Dow’s premier METEOR™ EO-RETRO Catalyst Conference in October 2018: A Catalyst for a More Sustainable Future. Since then, we have had several MR2000 Catalyst users sign on for the challenge, agreeing to strive for the best plant performance and reduce carbon emissions from their EO plant. Contact us to learn more about using Dow’s EO Catalyst and participating in the Dow Carbon Challenge.
