Technology Economics: LLDPE via Solution Process

9781491090435: Technology Economics: LLDPE via Solution Process

In the next few years, the US ethylene capacity is expected to grow by more than 30%, due to the rising exploitation of shale gas. Likewise, major petrochemical players have planned the construction of new polyethylene production plants. In this publication Intratec analyzes the technology and economics of a solution process similar to the NOVA Chemicals SCLAIRTECH technology. In the economic analysis Intratec presents not only the capital invesments and operating costs of a butene-based LLDPE plant in the US Gulf Coast, but also a regional comparison and sensitivity analysis on key raw material and key product prices. This study follows the same pattern as all Technology Economics studies developed by Intratec.
