New path to ethylene via ethanol: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Technip’s Hummingbird tech

January 3, 2017 |

Last June, we reported that Technip completed the acquisition of Hummingbird ethanol to ethylene technology from BP Chemicals Ltd. Utilizing a proprietary catalyst operating under mild operating conditions, the technology converts ethanol to ethylene through dehydration. The technology is lower cost and simpler compared to first generation technologies.

The process uses a wide range of ethanol feedstocks and can easily be integrated into existing ethylene facilities. The advanced catalyst simplifies the processing scheme and significantly increases selectivity.

Technip’s Paul Langston gave this comprehensive overview of the technology and the company at ABLC Next 2016 in San Francisco.
