Dow Achieves Significant Strategic Milestone as USDA Allows Commercialization of Enlist Corn, Soybean

Representing a significant milestone toward the commercialization of Dow's Enlist(TM) corn and soybean traits in the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued its deregulation decisions after concluding one of the most thorough reviews of a biotech trait in history. Enlist is a next-generation technology that will drive critical improvements for the agricultural industry. Dow has doubled the value of Dow AgroSciences over the past five-seven years, while utilizing the profitability of strong crop protection business to not only build one of the best technology platforms in seeds, but also in crop protection. Leveraging Dow's global brand, global network, balance sheet, core research and development (R&D) and shared service, Dow AgroSciences has built the fast-growing seeds business in the industry. Representing the best of both platforms, the commercialization of the Enlist technology will further bolster the earnings power of this R&D engine.

Dow Chemical Announces Executive Changes

Dow Chemical has named Neil Hawkins as corporate vice president and chief sustainability officer, effective October 1, 2014. Hawkins will have global responsibility for Dow's environment, health and safety (EH&S) and sustainability strategy and initiatives. He succeeds David Kepler who will retire at the end of 2014.

Dow Elastomers introduces INFUSE OBCs

Dow Elastomers has introduced INFUSE Olefin Block Copolymers, or OBCs, for use in the athletic shoe midsole. INFUSE OBCs help improve rebound, compression set, comfort and dimensional stability while providing the most lightweight material option available - all essential factors in the performance, safety and comfort of a shoe. Midsoles dictate the life of a shoe, including durability, and the quality of the runner's ride. They protect the runner's foot, absorbing shock from jumping and running during a workout, lessening the impact and stress on the body. The midsole also serves as the center of stability for an athlete, preventing the foot from rolling inward or outward, which can lead to pain and injury. Formulators using INFUSE OBCs are seeing midsoles with enhanced flexibility, adhesion and foaming compared to conventional EVA-based midsole foams. INFUSE provides improved resilience with similar hardness, more stable performance over a broader temperature range, and reduced shrinkage and compression set at elevated temperatures. The technology can also drop into existing foam processes with minor adjustments by the manufacturer, eliminating the need to retool or alter the production process.
