Biofuel Powers 3 Dow Automotive Factories
Dow Automotive Systems, a business unit of the Dow Chemical Company, is securing bio-based fuel to power three primary manufacturing plants located in Midland, Mich.
Dow Automotive Systems manufactures structural adhesives, glass bonding systems and brake fluids at facilities that will be powered by biofuel within the Michigan Operations facilities at Dow headquarters in Midland. The products from these facilities are supplied to customers in North America.
Beginning in 2013 when Dow sources power from biofuel to power these factories, it will reduce annual energy usage by up to 1.5 MW per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 8,000 metric tons per year.
In June, Dow Chemical Company was among several recipients to receive $54 million in Energy Department grants aimed at improving the energy efficiency of advanced manufacturing technologies.
