The construction industry currently uses almost half of all paints and coatings that are sold. Large-scale projects for infrastructure or commercial construction are hardly ever directly affected by crises, and the demand for living space continues to grow in densely populated countries. The sales of paints and coatings for industrial products such as vehicles, on the other hand, are heavily dependent on the general economic development. This is the fourth time that Ceresana has published a stud...

CHEMICAL INDUSTRY: TRAPPING OF ACETYLENE CONTAMINANTS

Sciencedaily | August 31, 2020

news image

Ethylene is the most important chemical precursor for ethanol and polyethylene and is mainly produced by steam cracking. Although the ethylene fraction is usually very pure (more than 99%), remaining traces of acetylene contaminants can destroy the catalysts used in downstream processes. As ethylene and acetylene are very similar and only differ in the amount of hydrogen atoms -- ethylene has four hydrogen atoms bound to two carbon atoms, acetylene has two -- the separation of both gases is elab...
