WEBINAR - Options for lowering carbon intensity of aromatics production

Options for lowering carbon intensity of aromatics production

Note, this Webinar was held on February 8th - if you missed it Contact Us for further information.

NexantECA's Steve Slome will present this webinar highlighting the various options for lowering carbon intensity of aromatics production (benzene, toluene, mixed xylenes, and para-xylene).  The discussion will draw on the analysis, include key learnings and strategic insights from our recent Special Report (Low Carbon Intensity Aromatics: A Technoeconomic and Carbon Intensity Study). Regional cost and carbon intensity baselines, comparative carbon intensities of decarbonization configurations, cost of productions, and impacts of carbon tax/credits on competitiveness (including break-even values) are analyzed across four regions in the report: US, Brazil, China, and Western Europe.

Along with many other sectors, aromatics are facing a decarbonization push—and are especially important as they are part of the backbone of the chemical industry.  They are important feedstocks for many other products, including commercially significant polymers.  Aromatics decarbonization is complicated by the fact that there are many possible feedstocks (methanol, ethanol, natural oils, cellulose, waste plastics, and even corn and sugar) that can enter an already complex production system.


The Graphic below includes the routes that will be discussed.
