Smart and CO2 neutral Olefin Production by arTificial Intelligence and MAchine Learning

Project description

China and Europe join forces for CO2-neutral production of polymer building blocks

Olefins are a class of industrially important hydrocarbons, including ethylene, propylene and butylene, that are widely used as chemical feedstocks to produce plastics and as chemical intermediates for polymers and specialty chemicals. Conventionally, they are produced from petroleum refining and natural gas processing. The EU-funded OPTIMAL project will significantly enhance the sustainability of olefin production while strengthening Sino-European ties. The collaboration between the EU and China will harness Big Data and AI to develop technology enabling the capture and use of CO2 to produce olefins in a CO2-neutral production process.
