Green Ethylene Production Cost Analysis 2020

Green ethylene refers to ethylene manufactured using renewable feedstocks. The dehydration of ethanol produced from renewable feedstock, such as sugarcane and corn, results in the formation of green ethylene. Green ethylene is known to be one of the critical building blocks in several industries. It is utilised in the production of goods such as resins or fibres in chemical bases. Green ethylene also captures and fixes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thus,  helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Green ethylene retains the properties, performance, and application versatility of fossil-derived polyethylene that allows its immediate use in the plastics production chain. Thus, it is also used in the production of polyethylene, ethylene oxide, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and other products. It can also be recycled in the same waste streams as conventionally-derived polyethylenes like HDPE, LDPE, or LLDPE as its chemical properties remain the same a the fossil-derived alternative.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Green Ethylene production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
