BASF, Linde and Sabic cooperating for low CO2 electric furnaces in the Steam cracker.
Steam crackers go electric
"The use of electricity for heating – ideally from renewable sources – has the potential to massively reduce CO2 emissions. But can this concept be transferred to the petrochemical industry? BASF, SABIC and Linde certainly believe so. They are working on a joint e-furnace project with the potential to cut CO2 emissions by more than 95 percent!"
Kokel, Nicolas Is this a separate Technology or Technology Type, which we have/need to configure?
