Optimize olefin operations
This operating company used process models to find solutions to poor separation performance
Bulk petrochemical manufacturing is a highly competitive global industry. When margins are tight, manufacturers seek ways to optimize performance and to reduce costs while maximizing yields and revenue. Optimization options include alternative feeds, plant/process revamps and improved operations to achieve better separation and yields to lower energy consumption, to minimize product loss and to decrease maintenance costs.
