Focus on Bio-PP
After ethylene, propylene is the most important organic building block for poly-olefin production.
Bio-PP could be obtained from biological resources by butylene dehydration of bio-isobutanol obtained from glucose and subsequent polymerization.
With respect to the production of Bio-PE, the process followed to obtain bio-PP has been less explored.
The most promising route to obtain propylene is through methanol, further processed to obtain propylene monomer via Lurgi’s methanol-to-propylene (MTP) process or UOP’s methanol-to-olefins process.
Another route could be the production of 1,2-propanediol or acetone through fermentation and a further conversion to 2-propanol by dehydration to propylene.
