ANGLETON — Brazoria County commissioners voted on a reinvestment zone and tax abatement package that could result in a new local Dow Chemical facility.

Dow is planning to build a global-scale methylene biphenyl diisocyanate, or MDI, separation plant, said Rich Wells, Dow’s vice president of Gulf Coast operations. The plant would produce a range of isocyanates, which are “flexible, rigid and molded foams that serve a wide variety of societal needs such as mattresses, carpet backing, furniture, automotive, footwear, adhesive, sealants, coatings” and others, according to the company.
