Dow's Liveris cagey on PE plans

By: Frank Esposito

NEW YORK (Dec. 4, 12:25 p.m. ET) — Dow Chemical Co. Chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris stopped short of saying if the company's plans to build a massive ethylene plant in Freeport, Texas, will include polyethylene resin capacity. "We’re looking at offers and deciding what makes the best sense," Liveris said. "We could have large contracts to base-load someone else, but we’re not sure if that’s going to be for commodity polyethylene or not."
