MIDLAND—Dow Inc.(NYSE: DOW) introduced a new customer-facing business platform for the transportation industry called MobilityScience.
Dow officials say the transportation industry is undergoing its most significant transformation in more than 100 years. Digital technologies and the pressing need for a low-carbon economy have disrupted traditional value chains and present a new frontier for material science and innovation, where lighter weight, longer range, greater comfort, enhanced safety, and lower carbon footprint are the ultimate objectives. Dow officials say the company’s products and people can help meet these needs.
Dow’s transportation products include a wide range of polyolefin, polyurethane, acrylic, specialty chemical and silicone technologies for electric vehicles, hybrids and internal combustion powertrains.
“Society is emerging from a global pandemic that reduced movement of people and goods to the bare essentials,” said Tim Boven, MobilityScience growth director. “We expect the transportation industry to recover with even more emphasis on sustainability. Dow’s material science and innovation expertise are uniquely positioned to advance lower-carbon and digital solutions across transportation value chains.”
