Product Recovery

Product recovery systems must meet with evermore demanding efficiency

requirements. Economic efficiency, productivity, improved sustainability of

technological processes, as well as optimum utilisation of our resources are

key challenges in this for the industry.

BORSIG Membrane Technology offers optimum solutions here which helps

minimising losses, to recover valuable raw materials or products from

exhaust air or process gas flows and their recycling into the production pro-

cess and therefore enables:

- Recovery of valuable feedstock and product

- Significant reduction of waste and flare gas capacities

Important products and applications include:

• Ethylene monomer from polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, etc.), EO or VAM

productions

• Propylene monomer from polypropylene production

• Solvent (Butane, Hexane etc.) from slurry-type polymer production

processes

• Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) from PVC production

• Aromatics (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene etc.) from production and storage

• MTBE, ETBE

• Fluoro & Chloro Hydrocarbons from any related processes

• Methanol, Ethanol

• Bio-Fuels from production & storage

Our products include:

BORSIG Ethylene Recovery Unit
Ethylene monomer recovery for polyethylene (PE), ethylene oxide (EO) pro-

duction

BORSIG Propylene Recovery Unit
Propylene monomer recovery for polypropylene (PP) production

BORSIG Hydrocarbon Recovery Unit
Recovery of valuable hydrocarbon products

Product Recovery
BORSIG Ethylene Recovery Unit

Ethylene recovery for production of polyethylene (PE) and

production of ethylene oxide (EO) and vinyl acetate mono-

mer (VAM)

The Application

During the production of polyethylene (PE) one typical process

step is the degassing of PE powder and downstream pressure

condensation to condensate hydrocarbons. The residual purge

gas stream is still rich on non-condensable hydrocarbons and

monomer. To prevent enrichment of inert gas a side stream is

typically sent to the flare and also effects a loss of monomer and

hydrocarbons.

Similar purge gas streams can be identified in vinyl acetate

monomer (VAM) and ethylene oxide (EO) processes. For exam-

ple the inert gas Argon must be purged out of the process to

prevent enrichment. Furthermore internal distillation overhead

vents and other reactor purges can be treated.

All these procedure effect

- substantial loss of ethylene monomer and of other solvents

- increased flare gas streams and therefore secondary

emissions to the atmosphere

The BORSIG Solution

The BORSIG Ethylene Recovery technology is an easy add-on

system and can be considered in existing and new process

installations. The purge gas stream, typically pressurized and

containing the ethylene monomer and disturbing inert gas, is fed

into the membrane system, while the permeate side of the mem-

brane separation stage is fed back to the existing process gas

compressor’s suction side. By means of the resulting pressure

difference and the hydrocarbon selective membrane material,

the purge gas stream is separated into the inert gas enriched off

gas and the recycled ethylene-rich permeate stream. Typically

no other equipment or machinery is required, which results in a

very simple and reliable process solution.
