Acetylene Production Technologies (2022 Program)

This techno-economic report reviews the chemistry, properties, conventional and developing technologies (i.e., methane pyrolysis via microwave plasma), and development trends of acetylene. The report provides acetylene economics for four commercial processes in several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe, and China) under a consistent first quarter 2022 price scenario. Economic estimates to produce acetylene and hydrogen byproduct via methane pyrolysis using microwave plasma are also included. The report offer an overview of acetylene demand for global and major regional markets.
