Capture the full value of waste plastic pyrolysis oil through innovations in hydrocarbon analysis

Lummus Technology: Borny, J. F.  |  Chakraborty, S.

Today, the world produces twice as much plastic waste as it did two decades ago, with the majority ending up in landfills, being incinerated or leaking into the environment.

Control primary properties online in polyethylene and polypropylene rectors by using functional correlations

Polyolefins Technology Consultant: Divey, J. D.

Polyolefins products such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and polypropylene (PP) form approximately 65%–70% of all polymers manufactured globally.

Japan's Idemitsu, Mitsui Chemicals may consolidate ethylene plants in Chiba

Japanese oil refiner Idemitsu Kosan and Mitsui Chemicals plan to consolidate their ethylene complexes in Chiba near Tokyo as the industry is under pressure from competition with China.

A novel process for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane to produce ethylene and acetic acid

Linde Engineering: Bermejo, R.  |  Dörhöfer, T.  |  Kracker, G.

The authors’ company has developed a commercial chemical process<sup>a</sup> for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (ODH-E). By means of a heterogeneous catalyst, ethane and oxygen are selectively converted into ethylene and acetic acid, which, after separation and purification, are provided in polymer-grade and glacial quality, respectively.
