New Dow Platform Tailors Material Science Innovation To Transportation Industry

Aug. 31, 2020
Dow’s MobilityScience platform focuses on material science capabilities, innovation and services to transportation and automotive markets.

Dow introduces its MobilityScience platform designed to enhance the customer experience by tailoring technologies, products, and services from across Dow businesses to the transportation industry, according to the company. The platform is pursuing accelerated growth by addressing mobility mega-trends with material science innovation. Dow MobilityScience is reportedly expected to improve service, accelerate innovation, reduce complexity and more effectively connect customers to Dow’s products and capabilities.

The transportation industry is undergoing its most significant transformation in more than 100 years, according to Dow. 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’s transportation offerings 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,” says 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.”
