Alcohols to Olefins
Olefins are intermediates for the production of a wide variety of polymers, which are used for the production of numerous plastics, coatings, textiles, which demand is steadily increasing. Meanwhile the demand of end-consumers for greener products is growing at a fast pace.
To this end, Axens provides technologies to convert bio-alcohols obtained from a wide variety of biomass feedstocks (sugar or lignocellulose) into bio-based olefins, which can be further processed into bio-polymers.
Atol™ technology, developed in cooperation with Total, enables the production of polymer grade bio-ethylene from bio-based ethanol, obtained from sugars or lignocellulosic biomass.
