Introduction

This 5-Day GLOMACS training course focuses on the technology, value chains and industrial production of Olefins and Polyolefins. This training course will navigate through feedstocks, such as crude oil, through olefinic feedstock processing and polymer manufacturing all the way to the finished products as they are used in the end markets.

The costs and economics of producing the basic olefins and polymers are covered with consideration of the implications on marketing and economics. Historical and future industry direction and developments will be explored to provide real-life context. Fundamental process chemistry integral to the industry will be discussed as well.

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Commercial production of olefins and polyolefins
  • Economic aspects of the feedstocks and polymers
  • Technical aspects of the entire olefin and polyolefin value chain
