Mitsui, Idemitsu to Buiild Plant on Dow's Site in Texas

Japanese companies Idemitsu Kosan Co. and Mitsui & Co. applied to build a Texas chemical plant at Dow Chemical Co.’s largest production site as more foreign companies try to benefit from cheap U.S. natural gas.

The factory would use ethylene to make alpha olefins, which are added to polyethylene plastics and other resins, on land owned by Midland, Michigan-based Dow at its site in Freeport on the U.S. Gulf Coast, the companies said in an application for air emissions filed May 17 with federal and state regulators.

The companies in March disclosed plans to produce alpha olefins in the U.S. without saying where the plant would be built. Construction would begin in a year with production starting in the second half of 2016, according to the application.
