Siluria, Linde Move On New Ethylene Technology
Technology that has eluded the petrochemical industry for decades is inching closer to commercialization. Siluria Technologies has formed a partnership with the engineering giant Linde to develop its oxidative coupling process for converting methane into ethylene.
The technology is based on nanowire catalysts developed at the MIT lab of Angela M. Belcher. If it works on a commercial scale, companies could make ethylene from low-cost methane, rather than the naphtha . . .
