There has been a renewed interest lately in non-petroleum derived feed stocks for many chemical processes.  Among the fermentation-derived feed stocks, ethanol appears to be the most attractive, as its production technology is well-known and raw materials are common agricultural crops or, in prospect, cellulose biomass.  In this paper, Scientific Design Company shares its unique technology to produce Ethylene Oxide and Ethylene Glycols from Ethanol. This integrated approach results in lower overall capital costs and optimum energy integration.  The economic viability of the integrated ethanol to EO/EG process in an ever changing oil market is also evaluated.
