Biorenewable Insights: Ethylene, Ethylene Oxide, and Ethylene Glycol (2020 Program)

This report investigates the various commercial and developmental routes for the production of renewable ethylene.  Ethanol, bionaphtha, and methanol are all investigated as biofeedstocks for ethylene, as well as sugar and glycerin based routes directly to ethylene glycol.  Cost of production models, process descriptions, capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry are included.
