Dow manages approximately 220 kilometers (137 miles) of underground pipelines for the transport of ethylene, naphtha and propylene.
These pipelines are located between Dow Terneuzen, the port of Antwerp and the Botlek area in Rotterdam. The transport of chemical products by pipeline makes transport by train, truck and ship redundant. It is by far the most fast, sustainable, efficient and quiet way of transporting our products. Safe for people and the environment. The Pipeline Management department ensures this safety. In cooperation with farmers, local residents and operators of nature reserves.
