Abstract


The oxygen based production of ethylene oxide, one of the most important bulk chemicals, is considered as an example. Here, advanced cooling and distributed dosing of oxygen is identified as best reaction concept from an economical and technological point of view. Applying this innovative reaction concept, the production costs of an average sized plant are reduced by 1.35 Mio $/a, and the CO2 emissions are decreased by 2.7.10(4) t/a compared to an optimized reference case. This general method provides a first step towards more economical and greener processes.
