The performance of styrene plants is highly dependent on chosen operating conditions, the availability of utilities and current market price of ethylbenzene, styrene, toluene and benzene. Styrene production plants are typically integrated facilities, with complex reactors, significant material re-cycles and heat integration, which poses considerable challenges for process optimisation. This webinar explains how a rigorous approach based on advanced process models, now available off-the-shelf in the gPROMS Process advanced process flowsheeting environment, can help identify real additional value in operation.

Topics covered

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Styrene production processes
  • Challenges in maximizing operational profit
  • Advanced Process Modelling technology
  • Application to styrene plant optimisation
