Air Products Licenses Monomer Recovery Technology to
Cryo Technologies, Allentown, Pa.

About Monomer Recovery:

Air Products’ proprietary Monomer Recovery Technology combines pressure swing adsorption (PSA) with partial condensation to recover 99+% of C2s-C4s and nitrogen from the polyolefin process purge gas. The recovered olefins and diluents are recycled back into the process to produce product. The system is especially amenable to slurry phase high density PE and PP processes.

Monomer Recovery System Benefits

  • Short-term payback from recovery of unreacted monomers
  • Reduces likelihood of emission excursions that can bottleneck polyolefin production
  • Avoids capital expenditure for purge column modifications required in competitive membrane systems for nitrogen recovery
  • Avoids maintenance expenditure for membrane banks required in competitive membrane technology
