Biorenewable Insights: Ethylene and Derivatives

This report analyzes the developments in bio-based ethylene technologies, and key derivatives such as ethylene glycol and ethylene oxide. Ethylene and derivatives derived from bio-based sources can be converted into a number of chemical and polymer products - with potential to improve the GHG footprint of the process.  This report assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing ethylene and derivatives via bio-based sources, and investigates future capacities.
