Petron Licenses the Most Industry-Recognized Ethylene from Bioethanol Process

  1. 1. Petron Licenses the Most Industry-Recognized Ethylene from Bioethanol Process Intratec’s Technology Economics service offers an impartial economic evaluation of Petron’s process Ethylene is an important raw material in the world today, and is known to be effective as a raw material used in the production of PVC, polyethylene, ethylene oxide and other products. Petron’s Scientech ethanol-to-ethylene (ETE) process is commercially proven and well-accepted by the industrial sector. The process, which is very similar to Chematur Engineering AB’s process (see figure), essentially consists of a fixed-bed reactor to dehydrate ethanol to ethylene. In the process, ethanol is converted to ethylene by passing vaporized ethanol through a catalytic reaction system. The ethylene is cooled and any acidic components are removed with the condensed water. A small quantity of caustic is added to neutralize any acids. When producing polymer grade ethylene, it must be purified by using a caustic scrubber, a fixed bed absorber dryer and distillation and stripper columns. Through Intratec’s Technology Economics advisory service, it is possible to assess the economics of the suggested process. Intratec’s methodology ensures a critical analysis of the technology, based on:  Process Simulation  Estimation of Key Performance Indicators and list of equipment  Plant capital cost estimates developed using Aspen Process Economic Analyzer  Evaluation of all costs related to plant operation (raw materials, utilities, labor and other fixed costs, etc) 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.
