Dow Low-Carbon Fossil Energy Solution Makes Asian Debut at the China International Import Expo

  • Specialty amine solvent technology enables energy and manufacturing companies to reduce carbon emission more economically and effectively.

SHANGHAI, China – November 6, 2021 – Dow (NYSE: DOW) today officially launched its industry-leading amine solution for carbon emission reduction for the Asian market at the 4th China International Import Expo, held in Shanghai from Nov. 5 to 10. The solution encompasses innovative UCARSOL™ and SELEXOL™ formulated gas treating solvents, as well as solvent management and maintenance services. Customers from electric power, refinery, chemical, steel, fertilizer and other industries can now achieve their carbon peak and neutrality goals through more effective and lower-cost carbon emission reduction and utilization technologies.

“As the world's leading material science company, Dow has unique technologies and expertise to help customers deal with pressing climate change issues,” said Vichan Tangkengsirisin, commercial director, Asia Pacific, Dow Industrial Solutions. “Chinese companies and industries are proactively formulating their carbon peaking and neutrality action plans in response to the Chinese government’s ‘30·60’ strategic goals. Dow is committed to providing highly efficient and low-cost carbon capture solutions to assist customers in their energy transition and carbon reduction efforts.”

Based on the company’s 80 years of gas treating expertise, Dow’s specialty solvent solution is tailored in effectively reducing customers’ carbon emissions in industrial processes, especially for capturing carbon dioxide in the production of blue hydrogen, bioenergy, as well as other industrial process gas.

Integrated gasification combined cycle plants co-produce “blue hydrogen” when by-products such as carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide are captured. Dow’s UCARSOL™ and SELEXOL™ gas treating solvents and technologies effectively capture more than 90% of carbon dioxide produced. The captured carbon dioxide can be utilized in CO2 based Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), where it is the largest CO2 utilization. Dow provides tailor-made ELEVATE™ Miscible Gas Foam Conformance Solution with Dow specialty surfactants for oil field customers. In addition, Dow's DOWTHERM™ thermal fluids enable concentrating solar power (CSP) customers to achieve effective production while realizing their carbon peak and neutrality goals.

Before debuting in Asia, Dow’s carbon emission reduction solution was deployed in pilot projects in power and refinery plants in Japan, South Korea and Thailand, generating outstanding ecological and economic benefits. The solution has enabled Dow customers to reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions with low capital investment. In many cases, the conversion can be done online without plant shutdown, helping customers conserve steam consumption by 10% to 40%.
