Coal to Olefins Processes

Coming soon/PetrochemicalsPolymers and Plastics
The coal to olefins value chain consists of multiple steps starting with coal gasification followed by methanol synthesis and then by conversion of methanol to olefins.  This report discusses the major technologies associated with each of these steps and presents production economics for coal-based olefins with comparisons to gas- and oil-based technologies.  Global and regional supply, demand, and trade for ethylene and propylene are also presented.
