Ethylene technology from ABB is the most widely applied process for the production of polymer grade ethylene. The process is particularly well known for its performance, including product yield and energy efficiency, low investment cost, and operating reliability. Plant owners have selected ABB`s proprietary ethylene technology for more than 175 projects, accounting for about 40% of worldwide ethylene capacity.
The ethylene processes comprise basically four sections: thermal cracking, including quenching, gas compression and gas treatment, ethylene purification, and refrigeration.
