EcoCatalytic successfully demonstrates pilot plant scale up of chemical looping ethylene technology

October 2019: As part of its $4 million project funded, in part, by the Advanced Manufacturing Office of the US Department of Energy, EcoCatalytic successfully demonstrated a 1,000 fold scale up of laboratory results in a continuous circulating bed pilot unit of its patented ethane to ethylene ODH technology.  The pilot unit runs at a 1.5 kg/D of ethylene product rate using a fluid catalyst prepared by a qualified commercial catalyst vendor.
