    • Production of 1,3-Butadiene from Ethanol 

      Compton, Rosemary; Fries, Matt; Sinotte, Dillon
      Due to the increased reliance on natural gas, the production of 1,3-butadiene as a result of hydrocracking has decreased. This in turn drives the price of butadiene up at a rate that is unsustainable. Given that butadiene ...
    • Production of ethylene from ethanol 

      Baatiyyah, Hani; Al Hinai, Hamed; Alkhaldi, Fawaz
      The purpose of this project is to design a chemical plant for the production of pure Ethylene from a feed which contains 5% water and 95% liquid Ethanol by weight. The proposed plant will produce 130,000 kg/hr of ...
    • Production of ethylene from shale gas via oxidative coupling of methane 

      Akpan, Emmanuel; Al Asmi, Waad; Jefferson, Kevin
      The objective of this project is to design a chemical facility which will produce ethylene. The proposed plant will be located in New Albany, Ohio because of its promising shale deposits. This plant will operate at a rate ...
    • Production of propylene from methanol 

      Almansoori, Khalid; Kurdi, Abdullah; Almakhmari, Nasser

    • Production of Purified Terephthalic Acid Using the Spray Process Method 

      Patel, Beena; Kazuva, Chengeto; Aljarrah, Saleh
      The production of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is currently done using the Amoco Mid-Century (MC) method. This method uses a Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) for the oxidation of para xylene into PTA. By changing ...
    • Production of syngas: generation of power and DME synthesis 

      Lo, Philip; Martinez, Samantha; Opipari, Jennifer; Wood, Caitlin
      Refuse derived fuel (RDF) from municipal solid waste was used as the feedstock into a plasma gasifier in a two-step production process. Syngas, produced by the gasifier, was used as an energy source in a steam turbine ...
