G.I. Dynamics to present at the ‘Green Polymer Chemistry 2015 Conference' in Cologne, Germany
January 5, 2015
Invited by the Applied Market Information (AMI), Wim van der Zande, Managing Director of G.I. Dynamics, will give a presentation in Cologne, Germany on 19 March, 2015. The conference is focused on the market potential for the production of conventional polymers from sustainable sources.
With his presentation, entitled ‘Proven first step to bio-PET, a practical solution’, Wim van der Zande will cover the learnings on recent Bio-PET projects and production facilities.
With more than twenty years of research and development, Petron technology of proprietary catalyst and efficient process has attained successful commercialization. The ETE technology is the winning and sustainable solution for production of bio-ethylene from renewable material with lower greenhouse gasses emission. The resulting bio-ethylene could be integrated in chemical and polymer applications such as Ethylene Oxide (EO), Ethylene Glycol (EG), Poly Ethylene (PE), Poly Ethylene Teraphthalate (PET), Poly Styrene (PS), Ethylene Di Chloride (EDC), Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), as equaly versatile as fossil-based ethylene, and can be easily in existing downstream processing.
Petron Scientech, together with G.I. Dynamics, has been repeatedly selected for the implementation of bio-petrochemical plant. Their technology ensures high conversion of ethanol to ethylene, with minimum byproduct(s). Unlike petroleum-based ethylene, dehydration of ethanol through ETE technology also provides minimum energy consumption and minimum waste generation. Petron's ETE was recently awarded by Greencol (Joint Venture of Toyota Tsusho and CMFC) and Jilin Zhongxin China for producing bio-ethylene which later processed in EO/EG production.
ETE technology converts more than 99.5% of ethanol to ethylene with less by-product generation, making it efficient and commercially attractive. This of course is translated to high commercial potential of utilization of bio-ethylene in various industries.
