Ethylene Plant Capacity Constraints

Chair(s):
Merchant, K., Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology
Co-chair(s):
Krinock, R., The Dow Chemical Company

Traditional wisdom states that larger plants are more economical and like all the other processing plants, the world-scale Ethylene Plant has been increasing in capacity and size. Presentations in this meeting will provide the pros & cons of limitations of the large capacity plants from the point of view of the licensors, the major equipment vendors/manufacturers and the engineering/procurement/construction contractors. Equipment size limitations for major equipment including pyrolysis furnaces, compressors, towers, flare system and others, and the potential to design around current constraints shall also be discussed.
