Abstract

As the demand for propylene is increasing, viable solutions for conversion of low-value raw materials to high-value olefins are of interest. This article investigates the economic feasibility of a process for propylene production by metathesis of 2-butene (a by-product of fluid catalytic cracking). Process synthesis by hierarchical approach is applied for several process alternatives, with the goal of determining the best economical process flowsheet which returns the highest revenue for a fixed flow rate of raw material.
