Ethylene is one of the most important building blocks of the chemicals industry and can be produced either via traditional fossil pathways or from renewable feedstocks.
Atol® technology proposes the most promising green route via catalytic dehydration of renewable ethanol. The production of bio-ethylene from a large panel of ethanol feedstocks is now at hand. The quality of the bio-ethylene of Atol® makes it possible to tap into a wide range of applications.
As illustrated below, with Atol® technology, the production of bio-ethylene from a large panel of ethanol feedstocks is now at hand. The quality of the bio-ethylene of Atol® makes it possible to tap into a wide range of applications:
Atol® technology is also meant to bring into the market a soft solution to help the chemical industry upgrading the production assets by utilizing drop-in products that can be processed directly in the current assets.
Butadiene is a key chemical intermediate that is used to produce synthetic rubber, the raw material for a large variety of products of the daily life. About 60% of rubber worldwide production is dedicated for the tire manufacturing industry, which represents a huge potential market.
Moreover, the rubber industry has suffered over the past years from butadiene supply shortages caused by new investments in low-cost gas steam crackers.
