AIChE ’17: Ethylene Producers Congress

SAN ANTONIO -- Run in parallel with the AIChE Spring Meeting, the Ethylene Producers Congress is self-contained with its own exhibition area right outside the large ballroom that hosts the four-day meeting. The event began the Sunday evening before with their own reception, but didn’t have featured lunch speakers during the week, allowing participants to network during daily two-hour lunch breaks.

The side-by-side table-top exhibits were staffed by experts in their company products and services, so it was equally useful to spend time with them in addition to presentation sessions. The exhibit focused on ethylene-specific technology, but the staff at the tables were often knowledgeable across a company’s entire product line.

Nine sessions were offered over four days. Monday featured parallel Process Control and Reliability in the morning, and Feedstock Contaminants and a Rotating Equipment panel in the afternoon. Tuesday morning covered Operations, with parallel Technology Fundamentals and a Maintenance/Reliability panel in the afternoon. Wednesday morning was a Safety session, with the afternoon offering Capacity Constraints and Safety Instrumented Sessions. Thursday morning concluded with a session on Technology Solutions to Environmental Challenges.

This was the 29th Ethylene Producers Congress, and their experience in putting this event in the long program enabled attendees to participate in many sessions. Together with the table-top exhibits, this Congress provides a complete technology event for the ethylene industry.
