Ethanol to Ethylene Technology


The Ethanol to Ethylene technology is a very efficient, safe and commercially proven technology from sustainable and renewable feedstocks for producing a basic chemical which is a building block and heart and soul of modern petrochemical industry, that is otherwise produced via a petroleum route. Background
The twentieth century has been the oil era, where fossil-derived products, such as fuels, commodity chemicals and consumer goods was derived as a result from the refining industry. Nevertheless, the world we know today questions the sustainability of those non-renewable resources for the future generations. The renewable-based chemicals and products is slowly emerging and making its steps into the market. Our economy will soon be a bio-driven economy as it was an petroleum-driven in the past.

Ethanol to Ethylene Technology

The industry is going through vigorous research and development to substitute various petroleum products, such as transportation fuel, by renewable-based (bio)ethanol, as the sustainable fuel for the future.

The Stone Age didn't end for lack of stone, and the oil age will end long before the world runs out of oil
- Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani Another petroleum-derived product, ethylene, is known as the building block of various industrial and household products that was result from steam cracking of fossil-based feedstock. The versatility of ethylene could be found in many items that is within our reach, such as cleaning agents, drinking bottle, and as far as industrial application in polyester resin. Petron Scientech connected the two versatile feedstock in the Ethanol to Ethylene technology. The process results in bio-ethylene that has the same chemistry and property as its fossil-derived twin.

Ethanol to Ethylene Technology


Ethanol & Ethylene Future Outlook
Some parts of the world benefit from abundance of ethylene from petroleum, ethane-based feedstock. Nevertheless, the speed of capacity expansion of the naptha or gas cracker does not follow increasing ethylene demand at the same rate and not evenly distributed at the global level. Ethanol to Ethylene is the answer to secure ethylene supply to remain sustainable in the future and where limited ethane is available. Across the globe, ethanol production is expected to grow 10-15% per annum. Ease of availability of ethanol locally gives advantage to every ethylene (or ethylene derivatives) consumer to remain ahead-of-the-game and maintain a sustainable business.

Ethylene Products

Ethylene produced via ETE route can be selectively defined for downstream applications: Polymer Application (99.9% purity): HDPE, LDPE Chemical Application (99.8% purity): Ethylene Oxide, Ethylene Glycol, MEG, Styrene, EDC, VCM, PVC, etc.

Operational Benefits

High conversion rate ethanol to ethylene (min. 99.5% typically), and High selectivity of ethylene (99% typically), such that minimizing generation of by product, such as methane, ethane, propylene, butene, and CO2.

Technology Benefits

An example of great advantage of this technology for the downstream ethylene derivatives industry is that the ethanol-based route to ethylene can be economically set up at consumer location without risk and hazard associated with transport of Ethylene oxide. Ethylene Oxide transport as currently being practiced can have catastrophic consequences in case of accidents risk associated with any long distance transport of Ethylene Oxide.

Commercially Proven Technology

Petron Scientech has been involved in R&D of Ethanol to Ethylene (ETE) in the last 15 years and the only licensors with latest technology and provides integration to the downstream application (e.g., Ethylene Oxide/Glycol, etc). The combination is a winning solution for energy efficiency, investment, and operation cost.

ETE Technology has been applied globally since 1990s in India for Uniglobe Glycols, Reliance Industry, SM Dychem, and most recently by Greencol (Toyota/CMFC), Taiwan, Samsung Total, Korea, Heyang, China for EO-MEG, and polyethylene applications.
