Bio-based ethylene

  • Ethylene is one of the most important platform chemicals in use today which is produced from petrochemical feedstock.
  • Bio-ethylene made from bio-ethanol (from biomass) represents a chemically identical alternative to ethylene.
  • Compared to the petrochemical equivalent, the main advantages of bioethylene are that it can reduce greenhouse gas lifetime emissions (from both production and use) and the dependence of the chemical industry on fossil-fuels.
