Dow CanadaThe Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) congratulates Dow Canada on its announcement that it has finalised plans to construct the world's first net-zero carbon emissions ethylene and derivatives complex in Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.

"This announcement is a major step toward achieving net-zero emissions in Canada and we couldn't be prouder that our valued member is at the forefront of this transition. This incredible investment decarbonises approximately 20 per cent of Dow's global ethylene capacity while growing polyethylene supply by nearly 15 per cent," said Bob Masterson, president and CEO of CIAC. "This shows what can be accomplished when industry, municipalities, provinces and the federal government all pull in the same direction."

Upon completion of the new facilities, ethylene and polyethylene production will triple at the Fort Saskatchewan site. A second phase will retrofit existing operations to also eliminate carbon dioxide emissions.

For nearly 40 years, Canada's chemistry sector has led the journey towards safe, responsible, and sustainable chemical manufacturing through its U.N.-recognised sustainability initiative, Responsible Care. Founded in Canada in 1985, the chemistry ESG is now practiced in 73 countries and by 96 of the 100 largest chemical producers in the world. Through Responsible Care, CIAC members are compelled to innovate for safer and greener products and processes, and work to continuously improve their environmental, health and safety performance.

"Dow is a long-time supporter of Responsible Care, CIAC's made-in-Canada ESG for the global chemistry industry. A major aspect of Responsible Care is for members to strive for more sustainable processes that benefit all of society. This project embodies all that Responsible Care stands for. We are extremely proud to be associated with Dow Canada," Masterson said. 

Canada's low-carbon chemistry products are vital to decarbonizing the economy. Advances in key sectors such as green buildings, sustainable transportation, clean energy, and sustainable agriculture would be impossible without chemistry and plastics.
