Dow Corning Midland Plant – Community Support

Funding and support for environmental programs

Environmental responsibility is one of Dow Corning's core values and is key to ensuring a good quality of life in our community.

Through the Dow Corning Foundation Donor Advised Funds, the Midland Plant offers monetary support to select Midland County programs and projects that increase awareness and use of innovative technologies designed to make our world more sustainable.

The Dow Corning Midland plant is interested in partnering with local groups to:

  • Advance responsible environmental management
  • Promote opportunities for increased community involvement in environmental problem-solving

Our priorities

  • Waste reduction
  • Recycling and the promotion of recycled materials
  • Environmental issues affecting our community

The Dow Corning Midland Plant also will consider funding for environmental programs focused on conservation of wetlands, ecosystems, soil, air, water and wildlife.

Giving example – Donation of trees to Little Forks Nature Conservancy

Dow Corning is investigating a variety of energy crops, such as grasses and fast-growing trees, as potential renewable fuel sources for a biomass energy facility that will supply up to 40 megawatts of power to the Dow Corning Midland Plant.

Several test plots were planted to evaluate the biofuel potential of the energy crops. The Midland Plant donated the extra tree cuttings to the Little Forks Conservancy for planting in Midland County. The Little Forks Conservancy partners with landowners in or near the Tittabawassee River Watershed to protect and preserve the unique natural features of the region.
