Intratec Solutions LLC, the unrivalled provider of techno-economic assessments for chemical and allied industries, is proud to announce the publication of Propylene via Metathesis. This publication is being offered as a free sample. The publication's full content is available online, free of charge.
In this report, the production of propylene via metathesis from ethylene and butenes is reviewed. Included in the analysis is an overview of the technology and economics of a process similar to the CB&I Lummus OCT process. Both the capital investment and the operating costs are presented for a plant constructed in 2011 in the US Gulf and Germany.
Also, alternative ways to produce propylene via butenes-only metathesis, called self-metathesis, as well as via ethylene-only metathesis, through the use of an ethylene dimerization unit together with a metathesis plant, were presented. Discussions regarding the integration of a metathesis unit with an olefin plant are also presented.
