  • Propylene Glycol


Dow continually offers exceptional solutions to the industry to help create new technologies that can advance quality, reliability and sustainability. One recent example is the new hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide (HPPO) technology, which was jointly developed by Dow and BASF. HPPO technology works to reduce wastewater by approximately 70 to 80 percent and energy use by approximately 35 percent, compared to conventional propylene oxide manufacturing technology. Propylene oxide is a key component in the manufacture of propylene glycol. HPPO technology was recognized with the Institution of Chemical Engineers’ Innovation and Excellence Award in Core Engineering in 2009 and the U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2010.
