Technoeconomic assessment of potential processes for bio-Ethylene production
The use of biomass in the production of plastics can contribute to the depletion of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and secondarily to partially fulfill the growing demand for plastics expected in the near future. The aim ...
Thermochemical biorefinery based on dimethyl ether as intermediate: Technoeconomic assessment
Thermochemical biorefinery based on dimethyl ether (DME) as an intermediate is studied. DME is converted into methyl acetate, which can either be hydrogenated to ethanol or sold as a co-product. Considering this option ...
Technoeconomic assessment of lignocellulosic ethanol production via DME hydrocarbonylation
In this study, a new thermochemical route to produce lignocellulosic ethanol based on DME (dimethyl ether) hydrocarbonylation is proposed and economically assessed. The process is designed and evaluated using current kinetic ...
