The article focuses on trials conducted by Dow Haltermann Custom Processing for the production of propylene glycol from glycerine. Tagged propylene glycol renewable (PGR), the product is an alternative to industrial grade propylene glycol sourced from fossil fuels. It could be used in applications such as unsaturated polyester resins for boat hulls and bathroom fixtures, as well as aircraft and runway de-icers. Dow is also anticipating limited commercial quantities in 2007.
