Transcript

  • 1. Braskem Operates the First Commercial-Scale Green Ethylene Plant in the World Intratec’s Technology Economics service offers an impartial economic evaluation of Braskem’s process Ethylene is certainly one of the most important petroleum derivatives, known as the raw material for the production of numerous chemicals. Ethylene is most frequently produced via steam cracking of petroleum-based feedstock. Growing global concerns about sustainability and global warming, along with rising oil prices have motivated research into ethylene manufacture from renewable sources. Brazilian petrochemical company Braskem operates the first large-scale ethylene project to use 100% renewable raw materials. The plant, inaugurated in September 2010 in Triunfo, Rio Grande do Sul state of Brazil, uses ethanol produced from sugarcane as the feedstock. Through Intratec’s Technology Economics advisory service, it is possible to assess the economics of this process. From publicly available data, Intratec develops a complete study for the economic evaluation of the technology, encompassing:  Simulation of the mature process  Estimation of process consumptions and equipment requirements  Capital cost estimation for a commercial scale plant  Operating costs evaluation (including raw materials, utilities, labor and other fixed costs) Review our Technology Economics advisory service at www.intratec.us/tec and order the service online: 1. Indicate the commercial technology to be economically evaluated; 2. Select the pricing and payment options that best fit your budget; 3. Submit your order.
