LyondellBasell Plans to Expand Tri-Ethylene Glycol Production Capacity at Ethylene Oxide and Ethylene Glycol Plant in Pasadena, Texas

LyondellBasell announced that it plans to expand Tri-ethylene Glycol (TEG) production capacity at the company's existing ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol plant in Pasadena, Texas. The additional capacity of 50 million pounds per year would more than double the company's current production capacity. Engineering is already underway on the new unit, which is anticipated to be operational in late 2016. TEG is a colorless, odorless glycol that is used to dehydrate natural gas and as an additive in hydraulic and brake fluids, among other uses. The company's Bayport Underwood plant in Pasadena produces ethylene oxide, ethylene glycol, glycol ethers and other products. Glycol ethers are used to manufacture brake fluid, dyes, paint, solvents, commercial cleaners and waxes, detergents and cosmetic bases. Ethylene glycols are used as intermediate chemicals to produce polyester (PET) fibers, films and bottles.
