Title
Global energy & emissions reduction potential of chemical process improvements
Abstract

•The chemical industry aims to reduce its footprint despite market changes.•A roadmap gives options for energy and GHG reductions and notes R&D needs.•Propane ODH is an example area to improve selectivity and optimize conversion.

Current transitions in the global chemical and petrochemical industries provide a unique opportunity to reduce the energy and emissions footprint per unit of production as more efficient technology is brought on-line. They also provide an opening for a revival in industrial R&D focused on improving processes as current technology competes with newer and revived options to address market needs. Over 90% of chemical processes depend on catalysts to efficiently convert raw materials to products. This presents a pivotal opportunity to apply a range of recently advanced capabilities to catalysis and related process improvements. It is also the time to drive emerging technology and game-changers where advances in fundamental science & engineering are needed to lower hurdles and pave the way for next generation technologies.
