Comparison of catalytic ethylene polymerization in slurry and gas phase
Publisher: University of Twente
Polyethylene (PE) with the annual consumption of 70 million tones in 2007 is mostly produced in slurry, gas-phase or combination of both processes. This work focuses on a comparison between the slurry and gas phase processes. Why does PE produced in theses two processes... View more
