Ethylene

Toyo Engineering Corp. (Chiba, Japan; www.toyo-eng.com) has been awarded a contract for a project to construct an ethylene pilot plant, using waste-derived ethanol as raw material. The project is planned by Sumitomo Chemical Co. at its Chiba Works. Sumitomo Chemical has established a cooperative relationship with Sekisui Chemical Co. for the implementation of the technology to manufacture polyolefins using waste as raw material. Sumitomo will begin pilot production of the high-purity ethylene — the raw material for polyolefin — using waste-derived ethanol to be produced by Sekisui Chemical from the fiscal year 2022.

Toyo has worked with Sumitomo Chemical since the basic design of the plant and is currently carrying out the detailed engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) lump-sum contract, aiming to start demonstration operation of the plant for a short period. The project is slated for completion in 2022.
