The Global Petrochemicals Summit 2019 covers topics such as:
Outlook of Chinese polypropylene and compound demand over the next 5 years
Refinery- Petrochemicals integration developments
On-purpose propane dehydrogenation to close the propylene supply-demand gap
Feedstock dynamics and petrochemical plants (e.g. role of new feedstocks producers, oil price, traditional feedstocks vs shale gas, adapting to new feedstock dynamics, shifting to heavier feeds in the middle east …)
Revamp or production increase projects in petrochemical plants
What does the market outlook look like for these building blocks: Phenol market, Benzene market, Styrene market
C2 and C3 hydrogenation technology improvements – how will feed quality impact these catalyst systems?
Steam cracking furnace and coil technology developments – any anti-coking technology updates?
Developments in antifoulant additives and technology designs to mitigate against steam cracker separation train fouling – particularly on moving to lighter feeds
Developments in scrubbing or trapping technologies to remove trace contaminants from steam cracker feed, intermediate and product streams
Case studies on energy efficiency opportunities in petrochemical plants
A detailed review of popcorn polymer formation in ethylene plants and options/new developments to mitigate against this
New catalyst developments in petrochemical plants
Emissions control technologies or practices (CO2, NOx, dust…)
Risk mitigation projects/programmes
Case studies: operational issues, equipment optimisation, revamp, maintenance
Waste water management
Integration of bio feedstocks in petrochemical plants and bio feedstocks production technologies
On purpose technologies (e.g. propylene production, butadiene, etc)
Advances in Methanol-to-Olefins technology
Future technologies for changing feedstock landscape
The Global Petrochemicals Summit 2019 will be held in Warsaw, Poland on 4-7 November 2019.
