Shell Chemical Company Anne Castelvecchi Chemistry 280 March 29, 2001
New Policies Ogoni executions and the Brent spar incident The new head of gas and coal division Karen de Segundo The shell report and its impact on the company
Nanhai Petrochemical Complex Major products: Ethylene & propylene Butadiene Mono-ethylene glycol Polypropylene High and low density polyethylene Styrene monomer/propylene oxide
What Makes Nanhai Different? New and improved cracker 90% of waste recycled back into the system Off shore feedstock plant
How the Cracker Works Naphtha feedstock is separated into gas and liquid parts The gas is chilled and condensed at the same time New process allows the system to work at higher temperatures and is more efficient
CORTERRA! Using PDO and PTT to get what they want. Comfort-stretch qualities, new soft touch, easy dye-ability, inherent stain resistance, low water absorption and low electrostatic generation. Joining forces to cut down on waste. Can be used in athleisure wear, pants, Shirts, intimates, swimwear, etc.
PTT Advantages Melt condensation polyermerization of 1,3-propanediol and terephthalic acid Chain conformation of the odd-numbered, n-methylene glycol derived polymer is unique, it is “spring-like” in its long axis Can produce high strength alloys with high rigidity per unit weight of filler added PTT films exhibit softness, good high shrinkage and shrink force at low temperatures
