ETHYLENE OXIDE / ETHYLENE GLYCOL (EG) PLANT

 

   Capacity : 89.000 Ton/Year MEG
   Licensor : Shell Research Ltd. NETHERLAND
   Engineering and Supply Contractor : Mitsui Eng. Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. & Mitsui Co. Ltd. JAPAN
   Construction Contractor : AEA - TÜRKİYE
   Start Up Date : 12.12.1985
   Production Tecnology : In the Aliağa Complex entegrated Ethylene Okside / Ethylene Glycol Plant is "SHELL’s direct oxidation " process. In this process, ethylene and pure oxygen are mixed and passed through a multitubular catalytic reactor to produce EO selectively (High selective CRI catalyst containing Silver is used ) , and than at high pressure and temperature Ethylene Oxide and water are reacted for produce Ethylene Glycols (Mainly MEG and DEG).
   Main Raw Material : Ethylene,Oxygen
   Products : Mono-ethylene Glycol (MEG) Di ethylene Glycol (DEG)
   End Uses : Glycols are used for the production of Antifreeze, Polyester fiber, PET bottles, Textile Products.
